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.
