§ Mr. McManus
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations have been made to him on behalf of Fermanagh and South Tyrone to have more infertile land included in the Hill Subsidy Scheme; and what action has been taken or proposed on these representations.
§ Mr. Anthony Stodart
The Ministry of Agriculture for Northern Ireland has received representations from individual farmers in these areas. Since none of the land in question is eligible hill land within the statutory definition, no further action is proposed.
