HC Deb 25 March 1976 vol 908 c233W
35. Mr. Spence

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what calculations he employed in determining the new guaranteed price for potatoes.

Mr. Peart

All relevant factors were taken into account and the new guaranteed price is 43 per cent. higher than that for the 1975 crop. This substantial increase should give producers continued confidence in potato growing.
