HC Deb 22 March 1982 vol 20 c238W
Mr. Strang

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (1) how much (a) milk, (b) cereals and (c) sugar were consumed in the United Kingdom in each year from 1970 to the present day;

(2) how much (a) cereals, (b) sugar and (c) milk were imported into the United Kingdom in each of the last 10 years, expressed numerically and as a percentage of total United Kingdom consumption;

(3) what is the level of self-sufficiency in the United Kingdom for (a) milk, (b) cereals, (c) sugar, (d) butter and (e) cheese; and how this compares with the last 10 years.

Mr. Peter Walker

Data on supply, usage and self-sufficiency—production as a percentage of total new supply in the United Kingdom—may be found in successive issues of the White Paper "Annual Review of Agriculture", copies of which are available in the Library of the House. For the latest issue, see tables 7, 10, 15 and 16 of Cmnd. 8491. Complete information is still not available for 1981.
