HC Deb 20 January 1981 vol 997 c144W
Mr. Richard Shepherd

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what are his reasons for the devaluation of the green pound in 1980; and how he secured reasonable prices for consumers as set out in article 39 of the Treaty of Rome.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

The last devaluation of the green pound was made in 1979. I regard the resulting prices as reasonable for consumers, taking into account the interests of producers.
