§ Captain Kerby
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he ceased to carry out periodic surveys to classify the standard of husbandry on individual farms in West and East Sussex.
The West Sussex Agricultural Executive Committee discontinued their complete survey of farms in April, 1954, and the East Sussex Committee in July. 1956. As regards my general policy in regard to farm surveys, I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply I gave on 4th February to my hon. Friend the Member for Maidstone (Sir A. Bossom).
