HC Deb 01 February 1940 vol 356 c1238
10. Mr. Wilfrid Roberts

asked the Minister of Labour whether grants of 33⅓ per cent. towards the cost of field drainage schemes are still available in the Special Areas?

Mr. E. Brown

Yes, Sir. I should mention that it is necessary for the applicant to show to the satisfaction of the Minister of Agriculture that a scheme submitted for grant would be likely to increase the productivity of agricultural land within the war period.
