§ Mr. Gow
asked the Minister for the Civil Service what is the total number of civil servants employed in the United Kingdom, in each Department, on the latest available date, and on the same date in each of the preceding 10 years; and to what extent the numbers are not comparable. 484W agricultural production of Wales and of England, respectively, is accounted for by milk, lamb and mutton, and cereals, respectively.
§ Mr. Bishop
This information is not available. Figures for the United Kingdom were published in the 1975 Annual Review White Paper (Cmnd. 5977). In 1973–74 the proportion of the value of total United Kingdom agricultural output accounted for by these commodities was milk and milk products 19.6 per cent., fat sheep and lambs 4.4 per cent. and all cereals 15.7 per cent. Comparable forecasts for 1974–75 are 20.4 per cent., 3.8 per cent. and 16.3 per cent. respectively.
