§ Mr. T. Williams
asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware of the general discontent among farmers and pig producers because of the long delay in payment for pigs which are sold at collecting centres; and whether he will endeavour to expedite these payments?
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
I am aware that there have been initial difficulties involving delay in the payment for pigs. These are being remedied and there has recently been a considerable improvement.
