HC Deb 15 December 1938 vol 342 c2212W
Lieut.-Colonel Heneage

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will bring in legislation to make it possible for the agricultural producer to receive the subsidy on all the three cereal crops instead of having to choose one of them, with the addition of such subsidy per acre for barley and oats as may be fixed after consultation with the farming interests, including the National Farmers' Union?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

Under the Agriculture Act, 1937, a farmer can receive subsidy on both barley and oats or on wheat. I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the announcement that I made on 9th December, to which I have at present nothing to add.
