asked the Minister of Agriculture what consideration has been given to the possibility of extending the grain storage subsidies payable under the Hill Farming Act, 1946, to all corn growers who wish to build suitable storage facilities on their own land; and if he will make a statement.

No general subsidy for this purpose could be justified, as the prices fixed for cereals are intended to include provision for the capital investment involved in the expansion programme.
