HC Deb 08 February 1974 vol 868 c421W
Mr. Winterton

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what was the average level of profits of pig farmers in each of the last 10 years for which figures are available.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

Information is not available in the form requested, although the Ministry does commission various economic studies of farm and horticultural enterprises, and these include annual sample surveys of pig production, the results of which are published regularly by the Universities of Cambridge and Exeter showing the financial results of various types of pig production.
