HC Deb 08 June 1971 vol 818 c297W
Mr. Elystan Morgan

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will take legislative powers to give further assistance to small farms.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

My right hon. Friend has no proposals for making further Schemes under the powers available in the Agriculture (Small Farmers) Act, 1959. He accepted the conclusion in the 1970 Annual Review that the Small Farm (Business Management) Scheme, which was the last in this series and which expired on 31st August, 1970, should not be renewed.
