HC Deb 20 June 1966 vol 730 c15W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food to what extent the estimate of £38,300,000 for deficiency payments in respect of pigs for the current fatstock year is now realistic; and if he will give a revised estimate.

Mr. Hoy

The cost of deficiency payments on pigs in 1966–67 is likely to be less than was expected when the original estimate was prepared, but it is too early yet to give a revised figure.
