HC Deb 07 April 1971 vol 815 c121W
3. Mr. Brewis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is his estimate of the early potato acreage this year, and how it compares with 10 years ago.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

4,000 acres. While there is no fully comparable figure, this acreage probably represents a drop of about one-third from 1961.
