HC Deb 10 February 1964 vol 689 cc8-9W
Mr. Harold Davies

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will state the average rent per acre of farmland in North Staffordshire for the years 1950, 1955, 1960 and 1963, respectively.

Mr. Scott-Hopkins

A sample survey of farm rents is conducted annually by my Department to provide a measure of the change in rent per acre from year to year in the country as a whole. It is not possible to use this information as the basis of reliable estimates of rent levels in particular localities.
