HC Deb 22 June 1943 vol 390 cc1015-6W
Colonel Carver

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food why no potato acreage payment has yet been made to Mr. A. Moverley, of Bunny Hill Farm, South Cliff, Hotham, East Yorkshire; and whether, as this farmer to whom some hundreds of pounds are due has written nine times to his Ministry, including registered letters, and has had no reply he will give an explanation for the delay and cause payment to be made forthwith?

Mr. Mabane

The delay in making the potato acreage payment to Mr. A. Moverley of Bunny Hill Farm, South Cliff, Hotham, East Yorkshire, was due to no application form having been re- ceived from him prior to the receipt on 9th June of a duplicate form sent to him in response to a registered letter received on 31st May. Prior to that date two letters only can be traced, a further registered letter addressed to another Department and forwarded to my Department having arrived on 2nd June. Instructions have been given for payment to be made immediately.
