HL Deb 22 November 1982 vol 436 cc783-4WA
Lord O'Hagan

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will take specific steps to ensure that Lymeswold cheese is available in the restaurants of the institutions of the EEC and in British Embassies in the member states of the EEC.

The Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Lord Belstead)

Because of heavy home demand the Milk Marketing Board are not at present exporting Lymeswold cheese. In these circumstances it would not seem appropriate to promote the cheese in the European Community in the manner suggested.
