HC Deb 02 May 1975 vol 891 c259W
Mr. Marten

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if she will list the foods by which she judges whether food is cheaper inside or outside the Common Market.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

The estimate of the effect of membership of the EEC on food prices—which shows that at present there is overall no significant effect one way or the other—takes into account the effect on the prices of all principal foodstuffs including sugar, cereals, milk products, beef, pigmeat, lamb, fruit and various processed foods.
