§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the percentage drop in capital investment in agricultural businesses in the current year to date compared with the estimate on which the original Budget provisions for 1975–76 were based.
§ Mr. Bishop
The provisions in Estimates relate only to capital grants payable on eligible investment that has been completed. In respect of total current investment, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Maldon (Mr. Wakeham) on 11th December 1975—[Vol. 902, c.300].
