HC Deb 09 November 1950 vol 480 c79W
71. Mr. Kaberry

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware that many local authorities in England are giving notice to quite to tenants of allotment gardens on land owned by the local authority and on requisitioned sites, and if he will make a statement.

Mr. G. Brown

My right hon. Friend is aware that some local authorities are giving notice to quit to tenants of wartime allotments. My right hon. Friend is about to circularise authorities explaining that the continuation of the Supplies and Services Act for a further period will enable them to keep their war-time allotments in cultivation, and recommending the retention of such allotments unless they can be permanently replaced or there are good reasons for giving them up.
