Description :

The South Australian government established the provisions for the founding of communal settlements, known as village settlements, in a part of the Crown Lands Amendment Act in 1893. Amendments to the way in which the village settlements were administered were proposed in late 1895 and a Parliamentary Committee of Enquiry was established to investigate the condition of the settlements. The Committee travelled to all of the village settlements and took evidence from the settlers.

In this selection from the report of the select committee on village settlements summarises the evidence given by the New Era settlers.
