Scots farmers resist computer call
MEMBERS of the Clydesdale branch of the National Farmers Union of Scotland are refusing to use residual council funds to buy computers for local offices
The farmers are resisting a suggestion from head office that residual funds from the old Lanark Area Council be used to help finance computers for local offices.
The computerisation is estimated to cost 9000 but this would take up a large proportion of what is available, leaving a balance of 5000.
The branch is to seek more information from head office on how the computer network is funded in other parts of the country.
