§ Mr. Price
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that Shire horse societies in various parts of the 1235W country will not be able to continue then-work and may have to go out of existence because of the withdrawal of Government grants; and whether he will reconsider the matter with a view to giving some assistance?
§ Sir R. Dorman-Smith
I have received representations in the sense indicated by the hon. Member, but I regret that, after the fullest consideration, I cannot see my way to withdraw the suspension of these grants.
