HC Deb 02 November 1966 vol 735 cc88-9W
52. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will seek assurances from land owners that they will not increase farmers' rents during the period of severe restraint.

Mr. Peart

The advice given to their members by the Country Landowners' Association which I reported to the House in my reply of 10th August to the hon. Member for Norfolk, South-West (Mr. Hawkins), applies both to the period of standstill and that of severe restraint.—[OFFICIAL REPORT; Vol. 733, c.348.]
