HC Deb 27 October 1954 vol 531 cc282-3W
Mr. Langford-Holt

asked the Minister of Food if he is aware that Mr. J. P. Stevinson, Sandhill Farm, Withycombe, Washford, Somerset, Registered Grower No. S.T. 77, was given a Removal Permit No. 2550, for the purpose of drying 60 cwt. of wheat, issued on 1st October, 1954, but only valid from 30th August to 13th September, 1954; and if he will see that in future no permits are issued that cannot be complied with.

Mr. Amory

Wheat may be removed from a farm for treatment or for storage as soon as an application is made for a removal permit. The permit is required to validate the subsequent claim to a deficiency payment. Mr. Stevinson applied for a permit to remove wheat on 30th August. He did not reply to an inquiry from the Ministry on a point of detail, but the permit was issued to validate the movement of wheat from the farm over a period of 14 days from the date specified in the application.
