Mr. G. Brown

My right hon. Friend and my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland propose, subject to securing the necessary Parliamentary approval, to make an Order under Section 1 (4) of the Agriculture (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, 1949, fixing a rate of £5 per head for steer calves born after 30th September, 1950, and before 1st October, 1951. It is not proposed to pay subsidy on heifer calves born after 30th September, 1950.
