HC Deb 03 March 1983 vol 38 c180W
Mr. J. Enoch Powell

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what estimate he has made of the cost in the current and the next financial year of the potato stock feed purchase scheme recently announced.

Mr. Peter Walker

I have been asked to reply. We estimate that the scheme will cost up to £1.5 million, and that all of the expenditure will be incurred during the next financial year.
