HC Deb 24 September 1948 vol 456 cc212-3W
Mr. Gander Dower

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that the delay in payment of Hill Sheep Subsidy in Sutherland due on claims for 1947 is causing hardship; and whether he will expedite payment.

Mr. Woodburn

I am not aware of any hardship being caused. I am glad to say that out of 1,339 claims submitted by Sutherland farmers in 1948, only 10 remain unsettled. These are receiving attention.
