HC Deb 07 April 1975 vol 889 c381W
Mr. Wm. Ross

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what was the total net farm income in the United Kingdom in 1973–74; and what are the forecasts for 1974–75 and in 1975–76.

Mr. Bishop

Farming net income in the United Kingdom for 1973–74 amounted to £1,283 million and the forecast for 197475 is £1,133 million. These figures are given in Table 21 of the 1975 Annual Review White Paper (Cmnd. 5977). It is too early to make an estimate for 1975–76.
