asked the Minister of Agriculture how many schemes of improvement under the Hill Farming Act have been submitted; how many have been approved; and how many have been completed in Wales.

Two thousand five hundred and thirty-nine schemes for the improvement of hill farming land in Wales had been submitted by 30th September, 1950, of which 1,700 have been approved formally or in principle. These schemes are comprehensive and necessarily take a considerable time to carry out, but work is well under way on over half of the 1,700 and eight have already been completed.
