HC Deb 28 June 1971 vol 820 cc45-6W
Mr. Gwynoro Jones

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what estimate his Department has made of the number of farmers who will be affected by the proposal regarding agricultural machinery in the Finance Bill, 1971, Part I, Clause 4.

Mr. Prior

As my hon. Friend the Minister of State for the Treasury said on 16th June, the number of machines affected in England and Wales is estimated to be below 5,000. The number of farmers likely to be affected is probably of the same order.—[Vol. 819, c. 106–7.]
