HC Deb 08 June 1962 vol 661 c111W
Mr. Worsley

asked the Minister of Labour what was the proportion of the United Kingdom working population employed in agriculture in 1930, 1940, 1950 and 1960.

Mr. Hare

The estimated proportion was 5.1 per cent. in 1950 and 4 per cent. in 1960. I regret that comparable figures for the earlier years are not available.
