To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they plan to write to all local authorities and parish councils with guidance making clear that they are entitled to sell allotment space in imperial measurements, as well as metric.

The Government does not intend to issue any instructions or guidance to local authorities on this matter. Current guidance on the disposal of allotments can be found at - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/allotment-disposal-guidance-safeguards-and-alternatives.

The provision and management of allotments, including their sale, is a matter for local authorities; it is a matter for them as to how they measure their allotments for sale.
