§ 38. Sir COOPER RAWSON
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will consider an amendment to Section 14 of the Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Act, 1931, and particularly Sub-section (2), in order that employed persons can enjoy the privileges of the Act in addition to unemployed and partly employed persons?
§ Sir G. BOWYER
The amendment suggested would involve legislation which my right hon. Friend does not regard as practicable at the present time. I would remind my hon. Friend that while the Government decided, for reasons of economy, not to put the Act in question into operation, financial assistance to extend the cultivation of allotments is being provided through grants from the Commissioner for Special Areas as well as grants from the Development Fund to the Society of Friends.
