§ 32. Mr. Kenneth Lewis
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when next he proposes to arrange a meeting of the National Farmers Union to discuss the high cost of replacement of agricultural machinery.
§ Mr. Peter Walker
I meet frequently with the president of the National Farmers Union to discuss matters of common interest:. The costs of agricultural machinery have risen broadly in line with the general rate of inflation. It is imperative therefore that the Goverment's policies to reduce the inflation rate should continue to be successful.
