asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer on how many occasions during the last 10 years owners and proprietors of businesses, other than agriculture, have been dispossessed by a Minister of the Crown on grounds of inefficiency.

Four, Sir.

Mr. Crouch

Is my right hon. Friend aware that from the outbreak of war to 30th April last no fewer than 2,950 farmers were evicted on grounds of alleged inefficiency?
