§ 46. Mr. George Rodgers
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what percentage of the United Kingdom's food requirements is produced in the United Kingdom according to the latest available figures.
§ Mr. Strang
The latest available information shows that nearly 54 per cent. of the United Kingdom's food requirements was produced in the United Kingdom in the year ending 30th June 1976. I cannot give a figure for 1977 for the reasons explained in the answers to Questions from my hon. Friend the Member for Rother Valley (Mr. Hardy) on 12th January and 16th February.—[Vol. 941, c.815; Vol. 944, c. 320–1.]
