HC Deb 23 June 1971 vol 819 cc312-4W
Mr. John

asked the Secretary of tSate for Wales what is the estimated average annual income of farmers in the Vale of Glamorgan, and what is the number of dairy farmers, sheep farmers, and beef farmers there.

Mr. Peter Thomas

The only information available for this area relates to the County of Glamorgan as a whole. In May, 1971, there were 947 registered milk producers in the county. The 1970 agricultural census showed there were 1,060 holdings with sheep. Corresponding figures are not available for holdings with beef casttle; and estimates of net farm income are not made for particular counties.
