HC Deb 08 July 1941 vol 373 cc47-8W
Colonel Carver

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will consider amending the Ministry's leaflet, Form 280B, relating to tile drainage, so that applicants for grants, who now find it difficult to obtain a 25-inch ordnance map, the submission of which is necessary for new claims, be allowed to hand in a tracing, properly taken, as is now permitted when the work consists only of reconditioning or repairs.

Mr. Hudson

I am at present considering, in consultation with the professional bodies concerned, the possibility of accepting suitable tracings in lieu of original ordnance maps required for the purpose of keeping a permanent record of tile drainage systems laid down, or reconditioned, with the aid of Government grants.
