§ Mr. Smithers
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food the average price per pound obtained for English run honey in October, 1954, and in October, 1955, respectively.
There are no official records of prices of honey received by English bee-keepers. Prices vary widely according to quality, kind, and mode of sale, and the quantities sold at the various prices are not known. I regret, therefore, that I am unable to give my hon. Friend the information for which he asks.
