HC Deb 21 December 1988 vol 144 c353W
Mr. Maclennan

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what measures are being taken to increase the current rate of payment available for less favoured areas under section 2(3) of the Farm Land and Rural Development Act 1988 in order actively to encourage take-up prior to 30 September 1991.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

As the farm woodland scheme was introduced only on 1 October 1988 it would be premature to review the rates of grant.
