HC Deb 23 July 1954 vol 530 c160W
Captain Duncan

asked the Minister of Food if the details of the service method of operation for Re-Commissioned Mills Limited in the 1954 crop-year have yet been worked out; and what will be the charge involved to the Exchequer.

Major Lloyd George

Detailed arrangements have now been settled by my Department in consultation with the Agricultural Departments and the other interests concerned. A scale of charges based on commercial rates has been arranged. If a loss arises on the operations of the Company, it will be charged, in accordance with existing practice, against the provision made for the trading services of my Department.
