HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 c54W
Mr. Proctor

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will list in the Official Report each type of agricultural produce which has been exported from the United Kingdom to Cuba and in what quantity and with what level of subsidy in each case.

Mr. MacGregor

[pursuant to his reply, 28 November 1983 c. 390.]: Information on exports of wheat to Cuba was given to my hon. Friend in my reply of 23 November [Vol. 55, c. 201–2.]

In 1982, the only other agricultural product exported in any significant quantity to Cuba was 5,000 tonnes of skimmed milk powder. Information available to the Intervention Board indicates that the average rate of export refunds paid out in 1982 on skimmed milk powder exported to Cuba was £319.38 per tonne, including the monetary compensatory amount.
