§ 28. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether Her Majesty's Government 813 will rejoin the International Wheat Agreement.
§ Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
Would the Minister bear in mind that we are the largest single importer of wheat in the world, and that it would be to the definite advantage of this country to be a party to this agreement and thus ensure continuity of supplies and stability of prices, and that we should not have left this agreement a year or two ago?
The hon. and gallant Gentleman is rather beating the gun. We have no agreement before us for consideration yet.
