asked the Minister of Agriculture why there is a delay in the payment of the Hill Sheep Subsidy for early 1948 for farmers adjoining the Eppynt Mountain, Breconshire; and how many claims are now outstanding.

The sheep belonging to then farmers are grazed in common on a military range and it is usual to obtain from the military authorities confirmation of the number of sheep belonging to each applicant for subsidy. I regret very much the considerable delay in getting this information in respect of last year's applications; it has now been obtained and subsidy will be paid on most of the 110 applications now outstanding within the next few days.
