HC Deb 22 February 1978 vol 944 c681W
Mr. Welsh

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what has been the number and percentage of farms in Scotland coming forward for letting in each year over the past five years.

Mr. Hugh D. Brown

The precise annual number is not known, but on the basis of sample surveys it is estimated that about 60 wholly tenanted full-time farms fall vacant and are available for reletting each year. This represents between three-quarters of 1 per cent. and 1 per cent. of all full-time wholly-tenantetd farms in Scotland.
