HC Deb 19 March 1998 vol 308 c726W
20. Mrs. Spelman

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what estimate he has made of the percentage of farmers who will leave agricultural production in the next five years. [33775]

Mr. Morley

I have not made such an estimate. The numbers of farmers leaving agricultural production will depend on the decisions they take in the light of economic circumstances.
