§ 84. Mr. Spence
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether payments will be made under the new ploughing subsidy where work has been carried out during the 1951 autumn ploughing season, prior to the decision to pay this subsidy.
§ Mr. J. Stuart
As announced in the House on 4th February by my right hon. and gallant Friend the Minister of Agriculture, land ploughed on or after 5th February will be eligible for payment of the ploughing-up grant if the conditions are satisfied. Land ploughed before that date will not qualify.
