§ 40. Mr. J. E. B. Hill
asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what are his estimates of increased productivity per worker over recent years in agriculture and in other industries having a larger increase than in agriculture.
Mr. Alan Williams
Output per head in agriculture has been rising at an average rate of 6 to 7 per cent. over the past decade. This is well above the average rate for the economy as a whole or in manufacturing industry.
