§ Mr. Elystan Morgan
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will take legislative powers to give further assistance to small farms.
§ Mr. Anthony Stodart
My right hon. Friend has no proposals for making further Schemes under the powers available in the Agriculture (Small Farmers) Act, 1959. He accepted the conclusion in the 1970 Annual Review that the Small Farm (Business Management) Scheme, which was the last in this series and which expired on 31st August, 1970, should not be renewed.
