§ 35. Sir KINGSLEY WOOD
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether a number of allotment-holders have received notice to quit the Willow Lane allotments, Watford, which belong to the urban district council, for what purpose the land is now to be 857 used; and whether he will take steps to secure such allotment-holders in their holdings?
Sir A. BOSCAWEN
Notice to quit was given because the land is required by the district council for building under the Housing Scheme. As building, however, may not begin at once, negotiations are in progress with the view to ensure possession to the allotment-holders until such day as building operations are immediate.
