Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Agricultural Policy (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: Any change in agricultural policy will be announced in due course after the annual price review. The hon. Member will, however, have seen the statement made yesterday by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries announcing an immediate scheme to encourage increased cropping during the present year.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Smallholdings, Dounie (Repairs) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I assume that my hon. Friend refers to the question of the repair to the mill-lade and wheel. This matter is at present sub judice before the Scottish Land Court.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Ullapool Pier (Grant) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I do realise that, but this is getting very serious consideration at the present time.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Applecross (Road Construction) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: My right hon. Friend regrets that he is unable at present to offer an assurance that any part of the limited funds at his disposal for road works in the Highlands can be made available for the construction of a road on the north coast of Applecross. He is at present considering a proposal by the county council that a new jetty should be built which would be of benefit to the inhabitants in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Applecross (Road Construction) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: We have to take into account the resources that are available to us, and roads are extremely costly indeed. It has been submitted that a solution may be found by improving facilities for passage by sea, and this point is being examined at the present time.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill (20 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I should be lacking in courtesy, and perhaps also a little in my duty, if I did not say that on the whole this has been a very helpful debate, during the course of which we have had one or two interesting incidents. I found the debate extremely interesting, because I confess that we were not very sure what the attitude of hon. Members would be when we recalled the reception accorded to my...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill (20 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: In the case of phosphates, of which phosphatic manure is composed in the main, they are to a very large extent imported into this country. The other question put to my right hon. and gallant Friend is one which I do not think I can be expected to deal with, namely, the guaranteed prices structure. Naturally, that is often thought about, but I cannot say anything about it, except that any...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill (20 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: The Bill is intended to cover schemes for any kind of fertiliser subsidy, but what we are introducing in the first scheme is a subsidy payable only on phosphatic fertilisers. I am dealing with a specific scheme under this Bill, and the question is: Why are we paying a subsidy for phosphatic fertilisers only and not for nitrogenous and other manures? In so far as phosphatics form the basis of...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill (20 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I do not think that it would be possible for anyone to produce the figures. I certainly have not got them here, and I do not think that they can be got. It is true that because of the abolition of the subsidy, or the removal or relaxation of it last July, production tended to fall, but the point I am trying to make is that phosphates, we believe, are available to meet any increased demand...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill (20 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: The right hon. Member for Belper dealt with him so well that I do not think that it is necessary for me to take up the arguments which he made. There is one point which he attempted to make, rightly or wrongly, when he quoted the figure of £300 million as the net aggregate income. Comparing that with the figure of the national income of over £11,000 million, it represents about 2.8 per...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill (20 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: The hon. Member will there find all the facts for which he is asking. If he should not get them all there, it would not be very difficult to go to the Library to obtain from the Statistical Digest all the details which could not be given in the Review because of lack of space.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill (20 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: If in referring to "goods" the hon. Gentleman means products of the agricultural industry whether in tons or in acres, all that is available to everybody. At home I have statistics going gack to about 1924. I do not think there is anything at all in the point he has raised. The hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Grimond) was the only hon. Member to speak for a Scottish constituency....

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Fertilisers) Bill (20 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: We shall certainly keep this under review. As I have said, the Bill gives power to produce any kind of fertiliser scheme. The hon. Member also asked about the minimum quantity to be considered, and I have said that it is 10 cwt. If the hon. Member has any cases to submit to the Department of Agriculture for Scotland, he will get sympathetic consideration. He also asked what kind of land would...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture, Scotland (Pasture Acreage) (20 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: In answer to the hon. Member for Hamilton (Mr. T. Fraser) may I say that as there had been a debate on the previous Order for England and Wales, whose purpose is identical with that of the Scottish one, with exactly the same background, I thought it would not be necessary for me to go into the question of why we wish to have a similar Order. However, I expected that the hon. Member would...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture, Scotland (Pasture Acreage) (20 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I gave the overall figure from the 1947 expansion programme, quite apart from any party point, to show that we have not reached our target and, rather, that we are moving downward. As regards the actual fall of tillage—the hon. Member, who was in the Scottish Office, will know what I mean by "tillage"—the latest figure is that we have lost 38,000 acres since 1950. I could give the figures...
