HC Deb 05 February 1941 vol 368 c956W
Mr. W. Roberts

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether figures are available of the amount of agricultural land acquired by the Air Ministry and the War Office since 1918, up to the present time?

Mr. Hudson

The figure asked for by the hon. Member is approximately 345,000 acres. It would not be in the public interest to differentiate between War Office and Air Ministry acquisitions.
