HC Deb 29 February 1960 vol 618 cc107-8W
Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is aware that the present rate of compensation, namely, three-quarters of market value subject to a maximum of £100, paid to owners of tuberculosis reactors found in attested herds is inequitable; and whether he will consider revising this rate so as to make compensation payable at full market value.

Mr. Hare

While not necessarily accepting that the present rate of com- pensation is inequitable, I am considering representations that have been made to me on this subject.
