HC Deb 17 January 1977 vol 924 cc31-2W
Mr. Jopling

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food which two-year period between 1947 and 1976, including years for which only forecast figures are available, has shown the greatest fall in the labour productivity of the agricultural industry.

Mr. John Silkin

I regret that information on labour productivity in the United Kingdom is not available before 1964–65.

Figures of labour productivity for the period from 1966–67 onwards are set out in table 19 of the White Paper on the Annual Review of Agriculture 1977— Cmnd. 6703.
