HC Deb 30 July 1980 vol 989 c733W
Mr. John Carlisle

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the total number of persons involved in the processing and payments of claims for cereals at the intervention board, Reading.

Mr. Peter Walker

In 1980 no claims were received by the board before 23 May. Since then one person has undertaken these duties with the occasional assistance of three others as necessary.
