HC Deb 04 April 1957 vol 568 c69W
30. Commander Maitland

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will give details of the extensions in the scope of the ploughing-up grants mentioned in paragraph 30 of Command Paper No. 109.

Mr. Amory

Yes. It is proposed that the provision whereby farmers must seek permission before directly reseeding their land to grass shall be abolished. In addition, we are proposing that the qualifying date for the ploughing up of old grass which qualifies for the grant of£12 per acre shall be advanced from 4th May, 1939. to 1st June. 1946.
