HC Deb 20 May 1986 vol 98 c133W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, further to his answer of 1 May concerning net farm incomes, Official Report, columns 473–76, whether he will publish in the Official Report a table showing in terms of costs and prices the reason for the increase in real incomes on cropping farms between 1968–69 and 1983–84.

Mrs. Fenner

Detailed information on between-year movements in the costs and revenues of cropping farms is published in the annual reports of the "Farm Management Survey, Farm Incomes in England and Wales" for the years 1967–68 to 1970–71 (tables 30 and 36) and "Farm Incomes in England for the years 1979–80 to 1983–84" (tables 19 and 21 for 1979–80 to 1982–83; tables 21 and 23 for 1982–83 and 1983–84). Copies of these reports are available in the Library of the House.
