HC Deb 22 February 1982 vol 18 cc307-8W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he has made a study of the effect of subsidised Spanish agriculture on the United Kingdom and its ultimate effect on the European Economic Community market following Spain's membership of the Community.

Mr. Peter Walker

A considerable body of information and research now exists on Spanish agriculture, its effect on the United Kingdom market and the likely consequences of Spanish accession to the European Community. Much of this has been published. My Department continues to monitor developments and changes in Spanish agriculture.
