asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many acres of land were acquired by English local authorities and by the Land Authority for Wales (a) under the community land scheme and (b) under other legislation; and how much these acquisitions cost in 1977–78 or the period for which the most recent figures are available.
I refer the hon. Member to the reply my right hon. Friend gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Southampton, Test (Mr. Gould) on 24th April—[Vol. 948, c. 477]. The land acquired in England cost nearly £12 million. Figures for Wales can be obtained from the Land Authority for Wales.
