HC Deb 13 March 1978 vol 946 c93W
Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what assistance he proposes to give over the installation of plant for pasteurisation; and, in particular, whether he will give a 100 per cent. loan.

Mr. Millan

In the development areas and special development areas, the cost of pasteurising equipment may be eligible for regional development grant when installed in premises which qualify under Section 2 of the Industry Act 1972. Where the investment is associated with the creation of additional jobs, loans or grants can also be provided under Section 7 of the Act.

I am considering representations that assistance should be provided from agricultural funds for the installation of pasteurising equipment on farms.
