I assume the hon. Member is referring to deficiency payments on home-grown cereals. My Department received 350 late claims on barley and oats of the 1963 harvest. 146 were accepted and the estimated value of these was £36,000. No records were kept of the amount of money involved in the rejected claims nor of the number of late claims on wheat and rye.
