HC Deb 24 February 1970 vol 796 c305W
Mr. Higgins

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will tabulate the current United Kingdom prices of the different types of cheese specified in Table 7 of Command Paper No. 4289 on Great Britain and the European Community alongside other European country prices as a basis for comparison, from information available to him from international sources.

Mr. Hoy

Continental varieties of cheese of the kind quoted in table 7 of the White Paper comprise a very small proportion of total United Kingdom cheese purchases and retail prices representative of the country as a whole are not available. However, a number of commercial quotations suggest that prices in the United Kingdom are broadly the same as those given in the White Paper.
