§ Mr. Lambert
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will state the number of acres applied for in the county of Devon to qualify for the£2 per acre ploughing subsidy? 1824W mately in number and estimated cost to what is stated in my hon. and gallant Friend's question was submitted to the Highlands and Islands Committee. The Department of Agriculture for Scotland are prepared to offer assistance towards the cost of constructing roads of this type as funds become available, but I cannot give an undertaking that the total cost of such works will be met by the Exchequer.
