Mr. Morris occupied only part of Mickleham Green Farm, and his interest in the land was terminated because his standard of farming was too low and did not show satisfactory improvement after two years of supervision. The decision to terminate his interest in the land was upheld by the Agricultural Land Tribunal. The Lancashire Agricultural Executive Committee have let the land to a neighbouring farmer who has ploughed it and is now cultivating it in preparation for a potato crop.
I think that is. quite incorrect. The seven acres of land in question were in bad condition last October when that land was taken over. The present occupier did not attempt at that time to clear and cultivate it, as he probably thought it would do more harm than good. It has now been ploughed, and he is likely to sow potatoes in a few days, after dressing the ground with fertiliser.
