HC Deb 28 July 1967 vol 751 c294W
Mr. Elystan Morgan

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how much he estimates the Welsh Rural Development Board will expend annually when in full operation.

Mr. Peart

As indicated during the passage of the Agriculture Bill the operational expenditure of a Rural Development Board will depend on its programme and the area covered but when a Board is fully operative it might be of the order of £500,000 annually.
