§ Mr. Glenvil Hall
Non-Industrial civil servants analysed by staff groups, 1st October, 1947:
growers who had surplus plants to get into touch with farmers in need of them, either directly or through the committee.
Mr. Peach's nursery was adequately cropped by the committee this year. The committee relinquished possession to Mr. Peach on 31st October last after offering him the opportunity of pre-entry on the arable land to facilitate his production plans. The land was then lying ploughed in readiness for Mr. Peach to re-occupy. Since the date mentioned, there has been nothing to prevent Mr. Peach from bringing the land into cultivation. I understand that Mr. Peach has not re-occupied the land pending the settlement of certain claims for compensation. I am advised that re-occupation would not prejudice any claims he may have nor any counter-claims which my Department may have for betterment.
