HC Deb 25 April 1932 vol 265 c46W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the large-scale survey of farm management and technique and the factors which determine success in farming, which was initiated by the Minister of Agriculture in 1930, has been carried out by the universities and colleges; and, if so, whether any report or reports have been made to his Department?


A farm management survey covering the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire is being carried out by the School of Agriculture, Cambridge University, and I understand a report will be available in August. Surveys of a similar kind in other parts of the country had to be postponed on account of the need for economy.
