HC Deb 03 April 1996 vol 275 c341W
Mr. Marlow

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will set out the margin per acre achieved by growers of wheat and barley for each of the last 15 years in(a) constant and (b) current prices, setting out the definition used by his Department of margin or margins where more than one classification is appropriate. [24279]

Mr. Baldry

I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave him on 18 March 1996,Official Report, column 27. The 1994–95 edition of "Farm Incomes in the United Kingdom", referred to in that earlier answer, has now been published. A description of the composition of and uses for gross margins is contained in chapter 3 of "Farm Incomes in the UK 1992–93". Copies of these publications are available in the Library of the House.
