asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he has any plans to take over the Welsh plant breeding station, Gogerddan, Aberystwyth; and if he will make a statement.

I have no plans to take over the Welsh plant breeding station. I do not consider that there would be any advantage in isolating agricultural research undertaken in Wales and I am convinced that the future of the station can best be secured within the framework of the Agricultural and Food Research Council.
