§ Mr. Henderson Stewart
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware of the anxiety felt by farmers and poultry-keepers on account of the delay in announcing higher prices as a result of the increased costs of production; and when this announcement may be expected?
Following separate meetings with representatives of the English and Scottish National Farmers' Unions respectively, my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture and I yesterday met representatives of the two Unions on the subject of agricultural prices. A final announcement will not be long delayed.
