HC Deb 29 July 1965 vol 717 cc172-3W
Mr. Wall

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what was the total value of support prices to agriculture, horticulture and fisheries respectively, during the past year.

Mr. John Mackie

As stated in paragraph 20 of the Annual Review White Paper (Cmnd. 2621), the value of the agricultural guarantees for the whole of the United Kingdom in 1964–65 was £1,519 million. This figure covers both the price guarantees for commodities and the relevant production grants. There are no price support arrangements for horticulture and fisheries; assistance is given in other ways.
