HC Deb 31 March 1976 vol 908 c502W
Mr. Woof

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the percentage of gross national product produced by British agricultural workers, and how this compares with agricultural workers in member countries of the EEC.

Mr. Bishop

I regret that information is not readily available in the precise form requested. However, Table 1 of the 1976 Annual Review White Paper (Cmnd. 6392) laid before the House earlier this month gives figures for United Kingdom agriculture's contribution to our gross domestic product. For information about other members of the EEC, I refer my hon. Friend to the table on page 3 of volume III of the European Commission's 1975 report on "The Agricultural Situation in the Community" which is available in the Library of the House.

Forward to
