HL Deb 14 June 1979 vol 400 c804WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether British Embassies in the member States of the EEC provide British regional cheeses and Devon cream as part of their regular hospitality.


Her Majesty's Government intend no change in the arrangement whereby Embassy staffs themselves decide what food to offer when giving official hospitality. But many make a practice of offering British cheeses, and the same may well be true of Devon cream.
