68.

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that the Scottish Board of Agriculture are retaining the corn subsidy due to smallholders and ex-service men on the ground that excess debts and rents are owed to the Board by such men; and whether he will decline to sanction this proceeding, looking to the fact that the corn subsidy was intended to increase production and cannot be equitably used for these purposes?
