§ Mr. Lansbury
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether the Board has given its approval to the acquisition by the Kent County Council under compulsory powers of 4.75 acres for school purposes off Apple Avenue, Baxley; whether the site has been acquired; and, if so, what was the price paid; for what purpose the land had been used; and what was its rateable value previous to acquisition?
The Board confirmed in December, 1936, a compulsory purchase order for the acquisition of a site of 4.712 acres for school purposes off Apple Avenue, Bexley. The land was acquired on 13th December, 1938, at a price of £4,665. The land had previously been used for agricultural purposes and was not assessed for rates.
