§ Mr. Bossom
asked the Minister of Food what are the main factors which have interfered with his food programme for this year.
§ Mr. Webb
The main factors have been as follows: the need to save dollars; the continued shortage of supplies of certain commodities in the non-dollar world; and the difficulties we have experienced with Argentina over the implementation of the Trade and Payments Agreement. The shortage of tinplate has also limited the amount of home food canning.
