28. Mr. De la Bère
asked the Minister of Agriculture the total acreage of pasture- land in Worcestershire which has been passed as qualified for the £2 per acre grant for replanting to date?
§ Sir R. Dorman-Smith
Up to the present date, notifications of intention to plough-up grassland in Worcestershire have been received in respect of approximately 1,953 acres. I would remind my hon. Friend that notification of intention to plough does not of itself render the land eligible for the proposed Government grant, which is dependent upon the fulfilment of certain conditions.
