HC Deb 06 February 1963 vol 671 c60W
44. Mr. Brewis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects to complete payment of Hill Cow Subsidy due for the last financial year and what is the reason for delay.

Mr. Brooman-White

Payments for the Scheme year ended 3rd December, 1962, should be virtually completed in the next two or three weeks. Up to 31st January, some 12,000 applications out of a total of about 13.000 had been cleared for payment. In general payments have been made rather more quickly this year than last year.
