HC Deb 22 December 1983 vol 51 c407W
Mr. Colin Shepherd

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will announce the future arrangements for management of his Land Settlement Association estates following the termination of his agency agreement with the Land Settlement Association Ltd. on 31 December.

Mr. Jopling

From 1 January 1984 the estate properties remaining in the Ministers ownership will revert to the Departments care. A short term agency agreement is to be made with the LSA's former property department manager who will employ some of his former staff to carry out remaining routine adminstrative tasks until the properties are finally sold.
