HC Deb 06 July 1973 vol 859 c236W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what the Government propose to recommend that the Council of Ministers/Commission should do to obviate the surpluses of farm products within the Community of Nine; and what submissions Her Majesty's Government have made on this point.

Mrs. Fenner

My right hon. Friend has made clear our view that the pattern of CAP prices should be more closely related to the market, and that alternative methods of support for specific purposes should be examined. There has been no occasion for formal submissions.
