§ Mr. Steen
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food why Mr. Whitehead, a fisherman of Haberton, has not received his European agriculture guidance and guarantee fund loan for reconstruction and modernisation of his vessel; what administrative difficulties have caused this; what action he will take to expedite payment and interest thereon; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. MacGregor
As my hon. Friend knows from correspondence we have had on his matter we have repeatedly urged that payment be expedited in this and other cases. I very much regret the delays but this is entirely a matter for the Commission.
