HC Deb 06 April 1948 vol 449 cc7-8W
Mr. Dye

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he proposes to introduce legislation to limit the rents that may be charged for grazing land.

Mr. T. Williams

No. It is already provided under Section 35 of the Agriculture Act, 1947, that where grazing land is let on an annual tenancy or for a greater interest the rent may be settled by arbitration.

whether in view of his undertaking in an answer to the hon. Member for Harrow, East, on 7th November, 1945, that the position of these men will be reviewed regularly at intervals of three months, he will now review this case.

Mr. Creech Jones

The position remains as stated in the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for West Leyton (Mr. Sorensen) on 18th February. I understand that the Governor is now engaged on the usual quarterly review.
