QUESTION OF ADDITIONS
SOLDIER SETTLEMENT ISSUE O.C. ■... HAMILTON, this day. Whether the Servicemen's Settlement'and Land Sales Act empowers the -Rehabilitation Department to acquire an uneconomic unit to add to another such unit to make one economic unit is a question which the Hamilton Land Sales Committee has been asked to decide. The point was raised by Mr. A. L. Tompkins when he appeared for F. J.. Cleave, of Te Mata, who desired to buy 86 acres in the Te Mata' district from John Moore. Applicant's objects were to rent a house on the farm to two young ex-servicemen who Had acquired his carrying busi-1 ness and to use the place as a runoff for stock. The Rehabilitation Department sought to acquire the farm for an ex-serviceman who held 170 j acres of partly improved land alongside "which was declared uneconomic. The committee decided to defer decision until representatives of the State Advances Corporation and the Raglan Rehabilitation Committee could inspect the properties. The chairman, Mr. S. Lewis, said the point raised by Mr. Tompkins might lead to an appeal to the Land Sales Court.
