HC Deb 03 February 1971 vol 810 cc387-8W
69. Mr. Meacher

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will give special support to the horticultural industry, in view of the recent increase in fuel oil prices which will mean a 50 per cent. rise in the cost of glasshouse heating.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

No. My right hon. Friend regrets that he cannot en- courage users of fuel oil to look for special Exchequer support on this account.
