HC Deb 19 January 1943 vol 386 c61W
Mr. Muff

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he gave approval to the action of the East Riding Agricultural Committee in dispossessing Mr. W. E. Cook, Broadgate Farm, Walkington, East Yorks, from his holding in order that the farm might be farmed by a son of a member of the agricultural committee of the name of J. V. Huzzard?

Mr. Hudson

My consent to the application of the East Riding War Agricultural Executive to terminate Mr. Cook's tenancy was given because the holding was not being cultivated according to the rules of good husbandry. The landlord submitted the name of Mr. J. V. Huzzard to the Executive Committee for approval as the new tenant. After making careful inquiries regarding the condition of another farm occupied by Mr. Huzzard, the Committee approved of his becoming the tenant of Broadgate Farm. Mr. Huzzard, Senr., is not a member of the executive committee, but is the secretary of the Beverley district committee.
