HC Deb 07 April 1975 vol 889 c372W
Mr. Wm. Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what was the total net farm income in Northern Ireland in 1973–74; and what are the forecasts for 1974–75, and for 1975–76.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

The total net farm income in 1973–74 was estimated to be £71 million. Firm figures for 1974–75 are not available but the indications are that the net income will be lower than in 1973–74. No forecast has been made for 1975–76.
