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.
