HC Deb 06 June 1940 vol 361 c1004W
Colonel Burton

asked the Minister of Agriculture the number of acres ploughed up under the £2 per acre bonus scheme and the total sum paid out there under?

Mr. R. S. Hudson

I am not yet able to state the total area of seven-year grassland which has been ploughed up, as applications for the £2 per acre grant continue to be received. The total sum paid and in course of payment to date in England and Wales is £2,062,000.
