HC Deb 13 November 1974 vol 881 c151W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will introduce a feed subsidy or a special retention subsidy per head to enable farmers to hold on to store and young cattle over the winter months.

Mr. Bishop

We are already assessing the level of national fodder supplies and their distribution throughout the country. This assessment will be completed very shortly and we shall then consider what further action, if any, would be appropriate.
