§ 21. Mr. Pollock
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether, in the light of representations he has received, he will now reconsider the need for a lime and phosphate subsidy with particular reference to upland areas.
§ Mr. Wiggin
The application of lime and fertiliser qualifies for grant aid under the capital grant schemes224W when it is part of a grassland regeneration programme. Grants of up to 50 per cent. are available on hill land. We have no plans to introduce further subsidies.
