§ 54 and 55. Mr. Dye
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (1) what was the profit or loss incurred in horticultural teaching or training establishments in England and Wales for the year ended March, 1958; and how these results compare with the two previous years;
(2) what was the profit or loss incurred on each of the farms run in connection with farm institutes in England and Wales for the year ended March, 1958; and how these results compare with the previous year.
§ Mr. Godber
The total loss on horticultural holdings at agricultural and horticultural institutes was £24,240 in 1955–56 and £41,407 in 1956–57. The total loss on institute farms in 1956–57 was £129,121. The figures for 1957–58 are not yet available. I shall send them to the hon. Member as soon as they are. Since the detailed figures for which the hon. Member asks amount to several hundred I shall also send these to him.
