§ Mr. Sproat
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will list the names of all voluntary bodies to which his Department gave funds in 1979 and in the current year; and how much went to each individual body last year and in the current year.
§ Mr. Peter Walker
I regret that this information is not readily available for the grants which are generally available to eligible businesses and which account for most of my Department's expenditure. Specific provision has however been made for the following payments:
1979–80 £ 1980–81 (estimated) £ Fox Destruction Societies* 524 Nil National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs 9,500 10,500 National Proficiency Test Council 40,000 64,000 * Grants to these societies were withdrawn on 31 August 1979.
