HC Deb 01 May 1973 vol 855 c270W
Mr. Jeffrey Archer

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether it is still intended to impose a tariff on imports of new potatoes on 1st May.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

No. The Council of Ministers has decided to extend the suspension of the common external tariff on new potatoes from 1st May to 15th May, and we have taken corresponding action to suspend our own small tariff of £1 per ton for a further two weeks.
