HC Deb 05 December 1973 vol 865 c410W
Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what quantity of wheat has been sold other than for milling or denaturing, and at what average price, during the months of August, September and October, respectively.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

As explained in the reply to my hon. Friend on 28th November—[Vol 865, c.161.]— the corn returns do not separate wheat for denaturing from other feed wheat. The following table gives ex-farm spot prices to growers in England and Wales for wheat other than for milling.

£ per ton
August September October
Seed wheat 62.05 62.31 62.10
Feed wheat* 55.92 55.23 56.37
Denatured 48.72 55.11 54.74
*Includes wheat for denaturing.

Information on total quantities sold is not available.
