HC Deb 21 November 1972 vol 846 cc330-1W
47. Mr. Cledwyn Hughes

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will define the precise scope of the 1973 Annual Farm Price Review and the extent to which increased costs for the current year will be taken into account.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

As foreshadowed in the 1972 White Paper, the review will be extended to include a fuller examination of some commodities and economic aspects, with particular reference to the scope of the common agricultural policy of the EEC. As for costs, I cannot anticipate the findings of the review, but all relevant factors will be taken into account.
