HC Deb 12 June 1961 vol 642 c12W
85. Mr. Grimond

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what are the differences in the latest prices of Manitoba hard wheat, English soft wheat and flour from those ruling in June, 1960.

Mr. Soames

The latest prices of Manitoba hard wheats are about £27 per ton c.i.f. and show little change compared with prices in June, 1960. English sofe wheats are making around £18 per ton delivered compared with £24 10s. a year ago. The price of home milled flour for bread making, which is mainly produced from imported wheats, is now about 16s. per ton more than at the same time last year.
