asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture whether he will publish the evidence as to farmers' profits which the Agricultural Wages Board had before it when it fixed the general minimum for agricultural workers at 42s. per week; and whether such evidence contained particulars of the estimated profits of farmers after the increase of wheat prices from 76s. to 95s. per quarter?
Sir A. BOSCAWEN
No complete and reliable documentary evidence is available as to farmers' profits at present,1068W and it is impossible, therefore, for me to comply with the hon. Member's request that I should publish it.
