HC Deb 03 March 1983 vol 38 c190W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will provide a breakdown by size of farm and type of production of the figures for changes in farm incomes in the United Kingdom between 1972 and 1981.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

Column 4 of table 25 of the "Annual Review of Agriculture 1983" White Paper (Cmnd. 8804) shows the average net income per farm for farms of various types in 1980–81 (not 1981–82 as printed). Corresponding figures for 1981–82 are shown in column 5 of the same table, and footnote(a) lists publications which analyse the data according to business size. Figures for previous years are contained in the annual review White Papers published each year throughout the period referred to.
