HC Deb 04 May 1950 vol 474 c222W
67. Mr. Dye

asked the Minister of Agriculture what is the total acreage of land at present held under requisition in the Methwold Fen area; the number of owners involved; and how many owners desire their land de-requisitioned.

Mr. T. Williams

Two hundred and seventy-five acres are still under requisition at Methwold, belonging to eight owners. I understand that two owners have expressly sought de-requisition, but I have no specific knowledge of the wishes of the others.
