asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many farm improvement schemes have been approved under the Farm and Horticultural Development Scheme (Directive 159); and if he will make a statement.

121 Scottish farmers have applied for assistance under this scheme. At the end of February 1975, 81 had been accepted as basically eligible and had been invited to submit farm development plans. With the help of the agricultural colleges 56 farmers have submitted plans, of which 24 have been approved.
