Mr. Lyell

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when the report of Lord Northfield's committee on the acquisition and occupancy of agricultural land will be published.

Mr. Peter Walker

The report is to be presented to Parliament tomorrow as a Command Paper. I and my right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Scotland and Wales will now examine it carefully in consultation with the organisations most concerned. My right hon. and learned Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer will be taking account of proposals relating to taxation in the study of capital taxation which he announced in his Budget speech.
