Storyline

The Minister has become concerned over the general quality of life and is not too keen to approve a six-story extension to new high-rise office building banker Sir Desmond Glazebrook is proposing. In fact, he has recently spoken out again the ever uglier skyline. Problems arise however when a city farm often visited by school children has its lease canceled. Perhaps Sir Desmond can help the Minister out by making available some vacant land that they have on hand? Not surprisingly, it's Sir Humphrey who has manipulated the entire situation to his advantage. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[On Hacker's planned visit to a inner city farm]
Bill Pritchard: The Sun specifically asked if you could be photographed amongst the donkeys.
James Hacker: I'm not sure about the donkeys. What do you think, Bernard?
Bernard Woolley: Well even if the Sun has no ulterior motive, it will be a gift for Private Eye. You with a crowd of other donkeys. I mean, that's what they would say, Minister. Or: "A meeting of the Inner Cabinet."
