HC Deb 20 July 1978 vol 954 c322W
11. Mr. Kershaw

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is satisfied with the level of returns being achieved by all sectors of the pig industry.

Mr. Bishop

Higher pig prices and lower feed costs in the first half of the year mean that pig producers' returns have been much better than in 1977. Recent cuts in MCAs have helped to improve the curing industry's competitive position.
