asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many farm workers have left the agricultural industry in Wales during the last year; what were the corresponding figures for the last 10 years; and if he will make a statement.

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave him on 3rd December 1976.—[Vol. 921, c. 298]. Final figures for June 1976 of people employed in agriculture, including horticulture, in Wales are:

  • Regular whole-time workers—12,342
  • Regular part-time workers—4,716
