HC Deb 19 May 1965 vol 712 c218W
34. Mr. Bence

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will take steps to improve the hill land of Great Britain, so that food production may be increased.

Mr. Hoy

As announced in the Annual Review White Paper we are considering urgently what more should be done to make the best use of agricultural resources in the hills, bearing in mind the economic, social and other factors involved. We will of course inform the House when we have firm proposals to put before them.
