§ Mr. George Rodgers
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is satisfied that the provision of an oil subsidy to various European horticulturists will not lead to unfair trading practices adversely affecting British growers.
§ Mr. Strang:
I see no reason why it should. The reply I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Harlow (Mr. Newens) on 17th March—[Vol. 888, c. 303.]—supplemented by the additional information contained in my reply to the hon. Members for Mid-Bedfordshire (Mr. Hastings) and Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Spence) on 20th March—Vol. 888, c. 1843.] shows clearly that British growers received a higher subsidy than other European growers.
