asked the Minister of Agriculture the percentage of farm holdings in each of the counties in Wales which are now supplied with electricity, as compared with the figures in the National Farm Survey, 1941–43; and the comparative figures for Wales and England.

County figures are not available. In the whole of Wales just over 9 per cent. of holdings had a public supply of electricity at the time of the National Farm Survey. The percentage on the 31st March, 1954, was 26·5. The comparable figures for England are 27 per cent. and 59·5 per cent., respectively.
