§ Dr. Little
asked the Minister of Supply whether, in order to encourage flax-growing in Northern Ireland, he will either restore the grant for the 1945 crop to the original figure of £10 per acre, or fix the price of flax at such an increased figure as will give farmers an adequate return for their expenditure and toil in producing the crop.
§ Sir A. Duncan
No, Sir. It is considered that the price offered should give an adequate return for flax cultivation on land suitable for the crop.
