HC Deb 12 June 1961 vol 642 c12W
83. Mr. Thorpe

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what study he has made of the comparative production costs between basic farm products in the United Kingdom and those of each of the six countries composing the European Ecoonmic Commission; and if he will publish the figures.

Mr. Soames

Cost of production studies are not carried out in E.E.C. countries in the way that they are here any the information is so fragmentary that no worth-while comparison could be made.
