HC Deb 30 October 1956 vol 558 cc1245-6
46. Mr. Spence

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what additional payments will be available to Scottish beef producers as a result of the supplementary amount recently announced for this purpose.

Mr. J. Stuart

Additional payments will be made to Scottish beef producers in accordance with the scale announced by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food on 25th October, which of course applies to the United Kingdom. These payments will be over and above those payable under the existing Fatstock Marketing Scheme.

Mr. Spence

Thank you.
