HC Deb 10 June 1976 vol 912 c761W
5. Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what percentage of the retail price difference between United Kingdom and Danish bacon can be attributed to the difference between £ sterling and the green pound.

Mr. Peart

Danish bacon usually sells at a premium over British bacon. The premium varies with market conditions but there is no obvious relationship between differences in the first-hand prices of Danish and British bacon and differences between the green pound and the market exchange rates for sterling or the resulting monetary compensatory amounts.
