asked the Minister of Agriculture how many smallholding sub-committees of county agricultural committees show a credit for 1937–38 without the grant from the Ministry; and which counties, if any, can show a credit balance on their smallholdings without Government assistance?
§ Sir R. Dorman-Smith
The administration of the smallholdings estates established under the Smallholdings and Allotments Acts is in the hands of the county councils and the councils of county boroughs who are not under any statutory obligation to submit copies of their accounts to my Department. I regret, therefore, that the information desired by my hon. and gallant Friend is not available.
