§ 66. Sir D. Robertson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how much has been offered in marginal agricultural production grants to farmers in Sutherland for 1959–60; how this compares with the total sums paid in the previous two years; and how many applications for grants have been rejected for land which is indisputably marginal.
§ Mr. Maclay
Grants totalling £10,600 are to be offered in Sutherland for the 1960 cropping season compared with £18,800 for 1958 and £12,600 for 1959. No indisputably marginal farms have been refused grant.
