To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give figures to show the average acres of planting for the Glen Clova variety of raspberries in each year since 1982.

Information on the areas of soft fruit grown commercially in Scotland is not collected on a varietal basis. The total areas of raspberries grown in each year since 1982 were:

Hectarage

19822,593·2
19832,516·9
19842,409·6
19852,332·2
19862,206·6
19872,102·9

In 1987 some 75 per cent. of the total area was occupied by Glen Clova. The pattern of varietal production is likely to change as newer varieties become more widely available.
