An Appeal on behalf of THE MIDLANDS CATHOLIC LAND ASSOCIATION by The
Right Rev. Mgr. J. DEY , D.S.O.
The Midlands Catholic Lands Society was founded when unemployment was at its height in order to further the scheme to settle unemployed men on the land, and thus prevent the deterioration caused by being out of work. The Archbishop of Birmingham and the Bishops of Shrewsbury and Nottingham are its patrons, and Monsignor Dey, of Oscott College, its Chairman. It has a training farm at West Fields, Market Bosworth, Leicestershire.
