§ Mr. Craigen
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what will be the cost of each of the five new grain stores agreed with the Intervention Board; and what discussions he has had with the Home-Grown Cereals Authority about the use of unutilised capacity in Clyde port authority's granary.
§ Mr. MacGregor
The cost of storage is commercially confidential and depends on contractual terms negotiated with individual storekeepers. Storage at the Clyde port authority's granary was offered to the Intervention Board but along with other storage in that area was not accepted because it is not close to grain-growing areas.
