asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will permit farmers who occupy more than one farm to draw a poultry ration in respect of each of the farms that they occupy, although the poultry is, for the purposes of economical management located at one of the farms only.

Where adjoining holdings are worked as one, my Department are prepared to consider the combined acreages for the purpose of assessing rations.

Would not the Secretary of State extend this to cases where the holdings are not adjoining?

I think the hon. Gentleman should not grumble at a satisfactory answer.
