HC Deb 14 March 1977 vol 928 c18W
Mr. Watt

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will give reasons for the delay in announcing the price levels for those commodities unaffected by the common agricultural policy, namely, potatoes, sheepmeat and wool.

Mr. John Silkin

I shall announce the new guaranteed prices for fat sheep and wool within the next few days. I am still considering the arrangements for potatoes, for which the marketing year begins on 1st August, and I shall make an announcement as soon as possible.
