- The Editor, B.B.C. 'You and Yours'
There is nothing stopping the motor sports enthusiasts - I hear on your
programme they are very numerous and spend a lot of money on both Land
Rovers and hotel bills - from buying or renting a piece of land and
organising their games on it.
It must be the land-owners who are putting up the 'Keep Out' signs- not the
Labour Government nor even the Department of Rural Payments, nor an agency
of the C.A.P. So it is surprising that the spokesperson of the Country Land
and Business Association did not explain this.
There is much mis-informed comment surrounding farming on air and in the
press, This is not surprising since the official term 'Single Farm Payment'
is not a single payment (it is an annual payment) and it does not reward all
farmers , nor always farmers at all but , I understand, can be claimed and
then traded on the open market.
