HC Deb 11 May 1961 vol 640 c68W
58. Mr. Pym

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what information he has concerning falls in the price of barley during the last two or three weeks; and how much this is due to the dumping of barley in this country by France and by Russia.

Mr. Soames

The price of home-grown feed barley has fallen by at least 10s. per ton over the past two or three weeks. This is largely due to low-priced imports from a number of countries.
