HC Deb 16 June 1954 vol 528 cc148-9W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will give an assurance that there will be no quantitative restriction on the amount of wheat eligible for the support price.

Sir T. Dugdale

As already announced, the guarantees for wheat of the 1954 and 1955 harvests have been determined on the basis of a deficiency payment system, and no provision has been made for restriction on the quantities that may qualify for deficiency payments.
