HC Deb 06 December 1944 vol 406 c534W
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.
