§ Mr. Evelyn King
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he proposes to publish the order de-restricting agricultural rents; whether there has been a delay; and if so, why.
§ Mr. Peart
As I said in reply to a Question from my hon. Friend the Member for Edmonton (Mr. Graham) on 26th February, the current restrictions on agricultural rents will cease to operate from 28th May 1975 throughout Great Britain. An order to this effect has been made jointly by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and myself. It is being laid on 18th April.
