HC Deb 04 November 1938 vol 340 c537W
Sir T. Moore

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in view of the fact that Scottish farmers are unable, on account of climatic conditions, to get the same return as English farmers, he will consider basing the Scottish wheat subsidy on the average price received for Scottish wheat?

Mr. Colville

While I have noted the point made by my hon. and gallant Friend, I am unable to give any indication of a revision of the arrangement under which the rate of wheat subsidy is determined in relation to the average price obtained by registered growers throughout the United Kingdom for home-grown millable wheat.
