§ 2. Mr. Forman
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what reports he has received since taking office on the extent and scope of farm diversification schemes.
§ Mr. Gummer
Two Government-sponsored reports published recently give, for the first time, a clear picture of farm diversification in the United Kingdom. These reports show that about one third of the farmers who responded have developed some form of farm diversified business activity. This result gives a clear demonstration of the success of the Government's policy in this area.
