HC Deb 30 October 1975 vol 898 c574W
44. Mr. Lee

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will provide a White Paper scheduling all the foodstuffs destroyed or denatured under the auspices of the European Economic Community since the United Kingdom joined the Community together with an estimate of the gross calorific and protein value of the foodstuffs thus disposed.

Mr. Strang

Detailed information about the operation in the United Kingdom of the guarantee functions of the common agricultural policy is already published in the form of a Command Paper through the annual reports of the Intervention Board. I could not, however, undertake to give similar information for the Community as a whole, and it would not in any case be possible to make a meaningful estimate of the sort requested by my hon. Friend.
