§ 71. Sir A. Hurd
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many farm improvement schemes have been approved in Berkshire; and what was the average amount of grant.
§ Mr. Soames
Up to the end of March, 1961, 984 applications under the Farm Improvement Scheme had then been approved in Berkshire at a total estimated gross cost of £948,949. The average grant commitment on each approval is therefore about £320.
