HC Deb 12 January 1976 vol 903 cc43-4W
Mr. Richard Wainwright

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will list the categories of financial grants made by his Department to bodies, voluntary and statutory, in the Yorkshire and Humberside Region in each of the last five years; and if he will indicate the total amount paid into each category in each respective year.
