HC Deb 03 March 1983 vol 38 cc190-1W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he has any plans to discourage the use at current levels of nitrates on farmland; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Fenner

My Department already advises farmers to apply no more nitrogenous fertilisers than is needed in the interests of good husbandry, and is undertaking related research.
