HC Deb 08 November 1977 vol 938 cc83-4W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what proportion of the butter and cheese consumed in the United Kingdom in 1973, 1974, 1975, and 1976 was imported from other countries now in the EEC.

Mr. Bishop

Variations in stock levels complicate comparisons between supplies and consumption of butter and cheese, but, of total new supplies, the following percentages were imported from other member States in the year concerned:

1973 1974 1975 1976
Butter 42 65 68 56
Cheese 26 30 31 32
