§ Mr. W. SHAW
asked the Minister of Food the total amount still due to farmers in Scotland in respect of compensation for potatoes of the 1918 crop; when the claims will be paid; and what interest, if any, will be allowed?
§ Mr. McCURDY
It is estimated that the compensation payable under the claims from Scottish potato growers in respect of the 1918 crop which are still outstanding will not exceed £40,000. I anticipate that these claims, upon which it is not proposed to pay interest, will be settled within the next three weeks.
