§ 89. Sir P. Agnew

§ 92. Mr. John Wells
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is satisfied that producers of English apples will be in a better position as a result of the Anglo-Irish Trade Agreement; and what steps he is taking to protect the interests of British growers.
§ Mr. Peart
I am satisfied that the arrangements governing the export of British apples to the Irish Republic96W under the new Agreement will be not less favourable to our growers than those that now apply. I have taken and shall continue to take all steps necessary to protect the interests of British growers.
95. Mr. J.E.B. Hill
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what restrictions on the export of United Kingdom apples into Ireland and on Irish apples into the United Kingdom resulted from the Anglo-Irish Trade Agreement; and what powers he has reserved to ensure that the United Kingdom producers will not have their share of the British home market thereby reduced.
