HC Deb 24 February 1964 vol 690 cc12-3W
Mr. Snow

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food why he does not keep records of the prices paid by farmers for diesel tractors; and what redress farmers have in respect of unpredictable and sudden increases of such prices in the light of computation of the Annual Price Review.

Mr. Scott-Hopkins

Information about the average ex-works value of new tractors is available to my Department, and the effect of changes in the cost of purchased machinery are taken into account at the Annual Review.
