§ Mr. Brewis
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection what consultations she has had with the EEC Commission regarding the subsidy on flour.
§ Mr. Maclennan
My right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, who has the primary responsibility for negotiations with the EEC on the subsidy programme, informed the Commission on 11th June 1974 that the United Kingdom Government intended to introduce a subsidy on prepackaged household flour. The Commission will be informed of the detailed arrangements as soon as these have been formulated.
