§ Sir J. Langford-Holt
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will make a statement on his policy directed towards abolishing the gap between the Irish and the United Kingdom green pounds in view of the effect this gap has on the United Kingdom agricultural industry.
§ Mr. Bishop
The Commission is currently proposing devaluations of 5.94 per cent. in the United Kingdom green pound and 2.71 per cent. in the Irish green pound. These proposals will have to be judged in the context of the price package as a whole.
