HC Deb 25 February 1946 vol 419 cc324-5W
Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the necessity for increased home production of food supplies, he will instruct county agricultural committees to make all land that is suitable for agricultural purposes, now used by golf clubs, barracks and airports, available for cultivation.

Mr. T. Williams

Arrangements have been made with the Service Departments for the maximum agricultural use of all land that can be made available; and land belonging to golf clubs is already making some contribution to the nation's food supplies. In view of this, I do not think that further action is called for.
