§ Mr. Maxton
If the Minister is to expand the scheme to give help to agriculture, will he at the same time withdraw the tax relief given to farmers by their not paying rates on agricultural land and consider introducing rating for agricultural land?
§ Mr. Latham
Regarding business and agriculture, will my hon. Friend take particularly seriously the recommendations made to him directly that brood mares should be treated as agricultural animals for tax purposes?
§ Mr. Campbell-Savours
If the scheme relates to agricultural land, it is possible also to provide for tax-free investment in agricultural land?
§ Mrs. Rumbold
I recognise the importance of agriculture to the national economy, but will my hon. Friend give some assurance that the business expansion scheme will be encouraged in the forthcoming Budget to support high technology investments and schemes?
