HC Deb 22 February 1955 vol 537 c125W
54. Colonel Gomme-Duncan

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proportion of the estimated £2.50 million support for agriculture for the current year he estimates will return to his Department in taxation.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I regret that there is insufficient information available about the distribution of this amount between farmers in different income groups to enable any reliable estimate to be made, but the proportion is probably less than 10 per cent.
