HC Deb 22 October 1946 vol 427 c338W
108. Mr. Hollis

asked the Minister of Works when the necessary alterations will be undertaken at Lackham House to enable it to be used as a farm training school by the Ministry of Agriculture.

Mr. Tomlinson

Work at Lackham House began early in September, but owing to the shortage of skilled labour very slow progress has been made. The site is comparatively isolated and lies in an area where there is a large housing programme. Efforts are being made to increase the labour force so as to enable the training scheme to come into operation in January.
