HC Deb 24 October 1940 vol 365 cc1162-3W
Major Milner

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that, notwithstanding numerous notices and representations over a considerable period from the West Riding War Agricultural Committee, the London and North-Eastern Railway Company still refuse or neglect to have some acres of land at Knowsthorpe Lane, Leeds, cultivated; when the matter was first brought to the notice of his Department; and what steps he is proposing to take to compel cultivation without further delay?

Mr. Hudson

I am obliged to my hon. and gallant Friend for bringing this case to my personal notice. In view of delay I have instructed the County War Agricultural Executive Committee to arrange themselves for the immediate cultivation of the land.
