Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether the statements made by officials of his Department to the Agriculture Committee on Thursday 11 February about aid given by the French Government to the French farming industry were made with his authority.

Mr. Peter Walker

I authorised my officials to give evidence on this matter to the Agriculture Committee and they are aware of my views.
