HC Deb 23 November 1943 vol 393 cc1471-2W
Sir J. Mellor

asked the Minister of Agriculture what alterations have been made since 9th October, 1941, in the procedure of war agricultural executive committees in cases where they propose to terminate a farmer's tenancy, with special reference to the documents supplied to him and identifying the Statutory Rules and Orders or departmental instructions making such alterations?

Mr. Hudson

The only alteration in procedure since I made a statement to the House on the date mentioned is that war agricultural executive committees have been instructed to supply to any farmer whom they propose to dispossess from his holding a written statement of the grounds for the proposed action. These are departmental instructions and no statutory rule or order is involved.
