HC Deb 15 July 1964 vol 698 c241W
81. Sir J. Gilmour

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proportion of the grain grown in Scotland in 1963 was dried on farms; and what was the equivalent proportion in 1953.

Mr. Noble

No figures are available, but the number of grain driers on farms has, however, increased from 178 in 1954 to 2,998 in 1964 which reflects a large increase in farm grain drying.
