HC Deb 11 May 1960 vol 623 c70W
Mr. Bullard

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what was the cost in the last financial year of the various improvement schemes that lie outside the scope of the farm price guarantees.

Mr. John Hare

The latest estimated cost in the financial year 1959–60, for the United Kingdom, of those production grants which are not relevant for the purpose of Section 3 of the Agriculture Act, 1957, and therefore are excluded from the total value of the guarantees is £10.7 million.
