HC Deb 09 March 1944 vol 397 c2209W
Sir A. Baillie

asked the Minister of Agriculture what is the approximate acreage, formerly liable to periodic flooding and restored to permanent cultivation since the start of the war.

Mr. Hudson

Figures are not available, but a large acreage of land which was either liable to flooding or was waterlogged has been improved as a result of drainage schemes carried out during the war.
