HC Deb 19 June 1961 vol 642 c88W
56. Mr. P. Browne

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will consider setting up an interdepartmental committee to examine the need for co-ordinating the food market, for limiting imports, by tariffs if necessary, and for operating effective antidumping measures, thus securing for British farmers an increased share of the home food market.

Mr. Soames

I am not persuaded that the present conditions of the food market are such as to warrant such a fundamental reappraisal of our agricultural support and trading policies as my hon. Friend suggests.
