§ Mr. George
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what financial allocation has been made to the agricultural training board for 1977–78; and how this compares with the board's expenditure for the previous financial year.
§ Mr. John Silkin
The provision for 1977–78 is £4,642,000. This is nearly 15 per cent. more than the £4,050,000 which the board spent last year.
