HC Deb 20 September 1948 vol 456 cc13-4W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Agriculture why he has served a compulsory purchase order on Mr. W. A. Stubbs, of Forest Farm, Papplewick, Nottinghamshire; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. T. Williams

this farm is being considered for an experimental husbandry farm. Only a draft compulsory purchase order has yet been served and no final decision to purchase has yet been taken. Consultation with the county branch of the National Farmers' Union about possible alternatives will take place shortly.
