HC Deb 06 October 1942 vol 383 c1061
33. Major Thornton-Kemsley

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is yet in a position to announce that the scheme for encouraging by subsidy the keeping of cattle on hill grazings will be extended to include the Aberdeen-Angus breed and its crosses?

The Secretary of State for Scotland (Mr. T. Johnston)

Yes, Sir. I have now decided to withdraw any restrictions on the breed of cow that can qualify for subsidy under the scheme.

Major Thornton-Kemsley

While thanking the right non. Gentleman for his reply, may I say that it will give great satisfaction to all who are concerned with the improvement of our grazings?
