§ 38. Mr. Grimond
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give further details of the scheme by which, up to £25,000, is to be made available as special assistance to schemes of land improvement in the Scottish Islands.
§ Mr. Henderson Stewart
Details of this scheme are now being worked out, following the Price Review, and my right hon. Friend hopes to publish them very shortly.
§ Mr. Grimond
Is the Minister aware that these figures will be a mere drop in 1860 the ocean? Will he explain how it will be possible to help producers, for whom we understand the scheme was particularly designed?
§ Mr. Stewart
The scheme was extended to the Islands to give support, particularly in relation to fertilisers and land reclamation. I hope it will do that.
