HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 cc419-20W
Mr. Boyden

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food in which specialised agricultural subjects there is a shortage of graduates.

Mr. Scott-Hopkins

I would refer the hon. Member to Paragraph 81(iii) to (vi) of the Report of the Committee of Inquiry into the demand for agricultural graduates (Cmnd. 2419), of which I am sending him a copy. The Committee reported that, in the main subjects with which they were concerned, namely agriculture, horticulture, estate management and forestry, the number of gradutes was sufficient or more than sufficient.
