HC Deb 02 February 1961 vol 633 cc159-60W
104. Mr. E. L. Mallalieu

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, as representing the Minister for Science, if he will make a statement about the Zuckerman Report on the scale of enterprise in farming.

Mr. Vane

The report prepared by the Agricultural Sub-Committee of the Natural Resources (Technical) Committee to which the hon. Member refers was published on 20th January. The summary which it provides of the available facts and figures about farm-size and scale and use of resources will prove of interest and value to everyone concerned with agriculture. I am glad to have this opportunity of repeating in this House the Government's thanks to Sir Solly Zuckerman and the Committee for the valuable and voluntary work involved in preparing their Report.

Forward to
