HC Deb 31 March 1971 vol 814 c405W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if it remains the policy of Her Majesty's Government to work for the selective expansion programme in agriculture in operation on 18th June, 1970.

Mr. Prior

The Government's policy is to encourage the selective expansion of an efficient agriculture, but it does not consider that this can best be achieved by a selective expansion programme with specific objectives and targets.
