Mr. T. Williams:

Under Section 1 and the First Schedule of the Hill Farming Act, 1946, grant may be paid towards the cost of installing a supply of electricity on a hill farm, provided this work forms part of a comprehensive improvement scheme for the farm. Grant is paid only on the initial capital cost of installation; no grant is paid on guaranteed minimum annual consumption charges. Farms eligible for grant are those which consist wholly or partly of hill farming land as defined in the Act.
