HC Deb 29 February 1972 vol 832 cc64-5W
50. Mr. John Wells

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is aware of the concern of the National Federation of Fruit and Potato Trades about the effect that the proposed level of compensatory amounts of over £20 per ton will have on retail prices for apples and pears in the United Kingdom; and what action he proposes to take.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

My right hon. Friend is aware of the views of the National Federation. Details of the system have not yet been worked out.
