HC Deb 04 July 1975 vol 894 cc588-9W
Mr. Watt

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many dairy farmers in Scotland have, as a consequence of the incentive provided by the dairy herd conversion scheme, turned from milk to beef production.

Mr. William Ross

I have been asked to reply.

Applications from 478 farmers have been approved under the scheme. A further 72 applications are still under consideration.
