HC Deb 07 April 1976 vol 909 cc187-8W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how his programme for the expansion of British agriculture will operate in conjunction with the EEC stocktaking of the common agricultural policy, particularly in respect of milk.

Mr. Peart

My objective in respect both of United Kingdom agriculture and of improving the operation of the CAP is to secure the efficient use of United Kingdom and Community resources. As regards milk, I want to see the expansion of efficient production in this country where we have natural and structural advantage and less efficient production in the Community discouraged.
