HC Deb 08 March 1923 vol 161 c748W
Lieut.-Colonel A. MURRAY

asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health if he will give a table showing, under various headings, the allocation up-to-date of the sum of £150,000 granted for agricultural development under Section 3 of the Corn Production Acts (Repeal) Act, 1921?

Captain ELLIOT:

The appended table shows the sums allocated to date from the grant of £150,000 provided under Section 3 of the Corn Production Acts (Repeal) Act, 1921:

Scholarships for Children of Agricultural Workers, 5 years at £3.000 15,000
Women's Rural Institutes. 5 years at £3.000 15,000
Edinburgh and East of Scotland College Farm 8,000
Post Graduate Scholarships— 9 at £100–£120—maximum for 5 years 5,400
Animal Diseases Research Association 3,500
Royal (Dick) Veterinary College 3,440
Perthshire Education Authority —Continuation Classes 750
Chief Costings Officer—to enable completion of work 250

As the expenditure of this money will be spread over a period of at least five years, it has been thought advisable not to allocate the whole of the grant at present to the possible exclusion of urgent and meritorious claims for assistance which may arise at a later date.
