HC Deb 13 May 1985 vol 79 c40W
Mr. Hunter

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on the workings of the Agricultural Holdings Act; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Fenner

The Agricultural Holdings Act 1984 came into effect less than a year ago. Its enactment has been widely welcomed by the industry as a whole, but it is still too early to make any firm assessment of its impact.
