HC Deb 07 March 1946 vol 420 c109W
65. Dr. Little

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, as the price of flax has been fixed at a figure which is unremunerative to farmers and spinners, he will make a grant of £500,000, from the £34,500,000 paid this year by the people of Northern Ireland into the Imperial Exchequer, to the Government of Northern Ireland to enable them to subsidise flax growers to the extent of the difference between the price fixed and £1 10s. per stone, which is the minimum price at which flax can now be produced.

Mr. Dalton

No, Sir.
