§ 27. Mr. Henry Clark
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on the payment of the subsidy on the 1960 potato crop to farmers who grew potatoes in Northern Ireland in that year.
§ Mr. John Mackie
I am sorry I have nothing to add to the Answer I gave to the hon. Member for Mid-Ulster (Mr. Forrest) on 20th January.
§ Mr. Mackie
That cannot possibly be the case, because the previous Government took more than four years with this job and we have been only three months and we are nearer to a decision than they were.
