HC Deb 07 April 1976 vol 909 cc200-1W
Mr. Peter Mills

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many ADAS field officers are employed by his Department.

Mr. William Ross

The Agricultural Development and Advisory Service does not operate in Scotland, though similar services are provided by the College of Agriculture and officers of my Department. On 1st April 1976 my Department employed 188 field officers on a wide range of duties not directly paralleled by ADAS staff.
