HC Deb 24 July 1973 vol 860 c474W
Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will compare the average unit cost of (1) nitrogen, (2) phosphate and (3) potash to the British farmer with that paid by (1) French, (2) German and (3) Italian farmers.

Mrs. Fenner

I regret that this information is not at present available. The Statistical Office of the European Communities has begun to collect data which should enable price comparisons to be made in future.
