asked the Minister of Agriculture the number, location and acreage of any State Experimental Farms in Wales; and by whom will they be administered.

My hon. Friend presumably has in mind the experimental husbandry farms which are to be acquired by my Department and managed and directed by the National Agricultural Advisory Service. There are to be two such farms in Wales. The first was bought some time ago and is at Trawscoed near Aberystwyth. This is an upland farm of 1,000 acres. The second is to be a hill farm large enough to carry 1,000 breeding ewes. A suitable property is now being sought.
