HC Deb 14 November 1968 vol 773 c119W
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.
