asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the county councils have in any cases created commons in connection with the provision of small holdings; and, if so, whether he will give figures showing the number and the approximate total acreage?

I presume that the hon. Member refers to the provision of common pasture for tenants of small holdings provided by county councils. I have no detailed information as to any such provision, but I am advised that the acreage let in this way is very small.
