§ Mr. Barnes
This scheme has been discussed between officers of my Department
Cereal year Quota payments on deliveries of flour by millers in Northern Ireland (excluding exports) Quota payments made on flour imported into Northern Ireland and retained for consumption Deficiency payments to registered wheat growers £ £ £ 1932–1933 … 54,256 19,250 6,463 1933–1934 … 118,849 34,836 19,245 1934–1935 … 131,106 29,651 31,281 1935–1936 … 115,574 20,608 25,376 1936–1937 … 29,690 3,665 4,681 1937–1938 … 34,604 3,985 2,317 1938–1939 … 189,073 not available 13,632 1939–1940 … not available not available 4,190
I understand that it would be very difficult if not impossible after this lapse of time to compile the figures that are "not available." The quota payment levy was suspended in April, 1940, by the Agriculture (Miscellaneous War Provi-134W
and the Crosby Corporation, and I am awaiting plans from the Corporation which, I understand, will shortly be ready. The diversion of the trunk road would require to be authorised by an order under the Trunk Roads Act, 1946, but in view of financial restrictions I am unable to say when, if the order is made, the work is likely to be started.
