asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the net income, including interest, on capital from farms in England and Wales in each of the type classes and area classes for each of the years 1960 to 1973; and if he will make a statement.

This information is published in the annual series of reports "Farm Incomes in England and Wales" Nos. 19 to 26 for the year 1964–65 to 1972–73. I regret that data on a comparable basis are not available for the years 1960–61 to 1963–64. Results for 1973–74 will be published after the annual review which is now taking place. Nine types of farming and six acreage size groups are distinguished and, because of the large number of figures involved, I will write to the hon. Member.
