HC Deb 28 June 1974 vol 875 c549W
Mr. Body

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will specify the kinds of food now available in the original Six of the European Economic Community at less than the world price.

Mr. Peart

It is difficult to make meaningful comparisons of the prices of foods in the Six with those on world markets because of the differences in the quality of products, in grading and in methods of presentation. At present sugar, wheat, maize, barley, lard and certain grades of apples are available at lower prices in the original Six of the EEC than on world markets.
