HC Deb 16 March 1978 vol 946 cc282-3W
33. Mr. Marten

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations he has received from the Australian Government about the effect of the United Kingdom's membership of the EEC upon the Australian agriculture industry.

Mr. Bishop

The concern felt by the Australian Government about the decline in Australia's exports of foodstuffs to our market has been expressed by Australian Ministers on a number of occasions. On 24th February my right hon. Friend discussed these problems with Mr. Victor Garland, the Australian Minister for Special Trade Representations.
