HL Deb 16 January 1979 vol 397 c944WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they are aware that Cheddar cheese, and other British regional cheeses, are not regularly available in the official restaurants of the European Parliament and the Commission of the European Communities; and what representations they propose to make to the appropriate authorities.


I have taken note of the points made by the noble Lord and I am arranging to have these drawn to the attention of British cheese exporters and to the responsible authorities of the EEC Commission and the European Assembly.
