HC Deb 25 November 1937 vol 329 c1423W
Mr. W. Roberts

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in order to secure the eradication of tuberculosis, he proposes to make payments under the Agricultural Act, 1937, in respect of breeding herds not engaged in the production of liquid milk for sale; and, if so, whether he can now state what scale of payments is proposed?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

When Part IV of the Agriculture Act, 1937, comes into operation, which will not be earlier than 1st April, 1938, it is proposed to extend the present Attested Herds Schemes to enable payments to be made, on a scale yet to be determined, in respect of herds maintained primarily for beef production.
