Hill-breeding Cattle, England and Wales (Subsidy)

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture – in the House of Commons on 22nd October 1942.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Donald Scott:

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is now in a position to make a statement with regard to a subsidy for hill-breeding cattle in England and Wales on the lines of that at present in operation in Scotland?

Mr. Hudson:

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply that I gave to him on 30th April last, to which I am afraid I have nothing to add.

Mr. Scott:

Can my right hon. Friend state the reason for this delay? Is it due to the difficulty of deciding which breeds are to be eligible for the subsidy?

Mr. Hudson:

Perhaps my hon. Friend will be good enough to look at the answer which I gave him in April, and he will see the answer to his Supplementary Question.
