HC Deb 25 January 1972 vol 829 cc379-80W
44. Sir D. Walker-Smith

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, in view of the concern expressed by the Chairman of the National Farmers' Union Poultry Committee as to the effect of proposed Common Market regulations in banning all trade in clean-plucked poultry, the terms of which have been sent to him, what steps he proposes, in the event of British entry, to safeguard consumer choice in this matter.

Mr. Prior

We shall be discussing with the Community any problems that may be created for our poultry trade, and once we are a member we shall of course play a full part in the development of the common agricultural policy in a way which takes account of conditions in the United Kingdom.
