§ Mr. Buchanan-Smith
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food on what date cow kennels were first accepted as eligible for the Farm Improvement Scheme Grant; and on what date cow kennels and milking parlours were first accepted as an approved method of milk production.

Cow kennels of approved construction have been eligible for Farm Improvement Scheme grant since 1966. Under legislation governing farm dairy buildings in England and Wales, cow kennels and milking parlours have been acceptable ever since their introduction into farming practice.
