HC Deb 01 May 1952 vol 499 c107W
Mr. Leather

asked the Minister of Agriculture what arrangements he makes for publishing the information he collects on the prices received by farmers for their produce.

Sir T. Dugdale

Summaries of this information are distributed as cyclostyled documents to the Press and others, and are later printed in "Agricultural Statistics, England and Wales, Part II." In addition, I have recently arranged, at the request of the "Farmers' Weekly" and in return for a fee, to make more detailed information available to that paper, and to expedite receipt of some of the information so as to accord with its publication date. I shall be prepared to consider requests from other journals to make similar arrangements.
