§ Mr. J. E. B. Hill
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what annual money savings he expects to make by the withdrawal of investment grants in agriculture; and what reduction in numbers and cost of civil servants will follow.
§ Mr. Mackie
There would be no savings in grant funds, which would be used to better purpose in the proposed Farm Capital Grant Scheme. There would be administrative savings from the proposed changes but it is too early to quantify them.
