§ Sir W. Elliott
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many civil servants were made redundant following the ending of the lime subsidy.
§ Mr. John Silkin
The duties of office and field staff engaged on lime subsidy work will come to an end as the scheme runs down during the current financial year. Every effort will be made to avoid redundancies by redeploying the staff affected to any suitable vacancies which may occur elsewhere.
