asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is now in a position to state that the disparity existing between the hill cattle subsidy schemes of Scotland and England has been removed?

Proposals are under consideration for bringing the Scottish scheme in some respects more closely into line with that proposed for England, and I hope to be able on an early date to announce what the modifications will be. I would, however, repeat what I said in reply to my hon. Friend's Question on 2nd February, that it is by no means clear that the differences between the two schemes are on balance disadvantageous to the Scottish farmer.
