HC Deb 27 May 1976 vol 912 c319W
Mr. Kelley

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food at what price butter produced in the United Kingdom was taken into intervention during April; and at what tendered price butter was sold out of intervention in the same period.

Mr. Bishop

The Intervention Board received offers of butter into intervention during April 1976 at £973.22 per ton. Acceptance of these offers depends on the results of testing after a two month interval. The Intervention Board had no butter to sell in April 1976.
