HC Deb 16 March 1978 vol 946 c280W
24. Mr. Farr

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what new steps he is taking to stimulate the export of British mutton and lamb.

Mr. John Silkin

I have sent a telegram to the EEC Commission protesting against the further discrimination which now faces our exports to France, because of the recent increase in the French threshold price and levies. Over half United Kingdom exports, however, go to other markets in Europe where access is free.
