HC Deb 17 January 1977 vol 924 c31W
Mr. Michael Spicer

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food if he will change the method of calculating monetary compensation amounts for the pig industry to bring it into line with that used for poultry meat.

Mr. John Silkin

Such a change was put to the EEC Council in September 1976. This proposal lies on the table and I will continue to work for its acceptance.
