HC Deb 23 June 1971 vol 819 c312W
Mr. John

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many persons in the Vale of Glamorgan are horticultural producers and how many persons are employed in horticulture there.

Mr. Peter Thomas

Separate figures for the Vale of Glamorgan are not available but in June, 1970, there were 47 holdings in Glamorgan as a whole which were mainly devoted to horticultural production, with some 100 regular workers excluding seasonal and temporary workers. In all there were 286 holdings in the county returning some horticultural acreage, including early potatoes, but the number of workers on them is not known.
