HC Deb 17 February 1958 vol 582 c115W
Mr. J. E. B. Hill

asked the Minister of Agriculture. Fisheries and Food whether, on the basis of figures available to him from his representatives in the Food and Agricultural Organisation and the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation, he will state for the last three years the grower's price and, where applicable, the f.o.b. export price of barley in Belgium, France, Netherlands. West Germany, Canada, the United States of America, Argentina, Iraq, Morocco, and Australia; and if he will publish a comparison of these prices with the equivalent British guaranteed prices and the average market price received for British home-grown barley.

Mr. John Hare

Some of the information, for which my hon. Friend asks, is given in the publications of the Food and Agriculture Organisation, the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation, and the United Nations which are in the Library of the House. I should not feel justified in incurring the expenditure necessary to try to obtain the remaining information and to satisfy myself of its accuracy and comparability.
