asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when the scheme for grant assistance for milk pasteurising equipment installed by producer retailers in Scotland will begin.
The scheme will come into operation on 1 September 1980. Grant will be 22½ per cent. of eligible expenditure. A Supplementary Estimate will he presented in due course, but authority for grant will initially rest on the Estimate and the confirming Appropriation Act. The necessary enabling legislation will be brought forward as soon as possible.
