HC Deb 22 April 1983 vol 41 cc193-4W
Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make representations to the European Community Commission to ensure that its proposal to make surplus grain available as foodstock to pig farmers will also apply to poultry farmers: and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Walker

The Commission is continuing to review the possibilities for releasing surplus grain for animal feed at reduced prices. If it makes firm proposals, I shall seek to ensure that those would not distort competition between the different sectors of the livestock industry.
