As I have already stated, various aspects of agricultural policy are receiving close attention with due regard to their importance. I am afraid, however, that I cannot at this stage anticipate when it will be possible for the Government to make a further announcement on the subject.


May I ask any right hon. Friend if the farmers may anticipate that the Government will undertake legislation early next year which will mean the absorbing of any increased production they may plan during this winter?
