HC Deb 25 March 1976 vol 908 c227W
10. Mr. Rost

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the difference in £ sterling between heating oil in Holland and in Great Britain.

Mr. Strang

Prices paid by growers for heating oil vary according to individual circumstances. We estimate the general level of heavy fuel oil prices to be 19p per gallon in Great Britain and 17p per gallon in Holland. For gas/ diesel oil, the prices are 26p per gallon in Great Britain and 27p per gallon in Holland.
