HC Deb 11 April 1973 vol 854 c296W
Mr. Molyneaux

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what schemes are at present provided for grant aid under Section 104(4) of the Agriculture Act 1970; how much was spent on these schemes in 1971–72; what grant was paid in respect of 1971–72; what grant is to be expected in relation to 1972–73; and what grant is estimated for 1973–74.

Mrs. Fenner

The total amount paid under Section 104(4) of the Agriculture Act 1970 for agricultural training in Northern Ireland in 1971–72, including provision for administrative costs, was £22,080 and in 1972–73 about £25,000. Provision has been made for expenditure of up to £50,000 in 1973–74. I understand that the current scheme covers the training of new entrants, practical training provided as part of sandwich courses, and short courses for existing workers.
