HC Deb 05 August 1966 vol 733 cc216-7W
Sir J. Gilmour

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proportion of the farmers in Scotland believed by his Department to be eligible for the new Beef Cow Subsidy Scheme have now lodged their applications; and whether, if there are still a number outstanding, he will allow applications to be considered if lodged by 15th August.

Mr. Ross

About 60 per cent. Since this is a new subsidy I am prepared exceptionally to consider late applications this year. I would, however, urge intending applicants, in their own interests, to submit their claims as soon as possible.
