HC Deb 07 July 1961 vol 643 cc153-4W
Lieut.-Commander Maydon

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many farm improvement schemes have been approved in the County of Somerset since the start of the schemes; and what is the value of Government aid in such schemes.

Mr. Vane

Up to the end of June, 1961, 3,980 applications under the Farm Improvement Scheme had been approved

for service next year. I regret that for reasons of security I cannot specify the exact capabilities of these vessels.
