HC Deb 30 July 1975 vol 896 c536W
23. Mr. Watt

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will initiate a re-examination of the criteria under which Scottish agricultural holdings are assessed in respect of the winter keep scheme.

Mr. Hugh D. Brown

No. The criteria of eligibility have remained unchanged since the inception of the winter keep scheme in 1963, and there are no grounds for reviewing them.
