HC Deb 14 June 1939 vol 348 c1334W
Sir W. Edge

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many acres of agricultural land, by counties, has been taken over by the State for Defence or rearmament purposes in the 12 months ended 31st May?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I regret that the figures asked for are not readily available, and could be obtained only by means of a disproportionate expenditure of time and labour, which I should hesitate to ask of the Service Departments under existing; conditions of pressure.
