HC Deb 22 December 1983 vol 51 cc406-7W
Mr. Warren

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will take action to promote the export of British hops; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Fenner

The Hops Marketing Board Ltd., the appropriate Government agencies and Food From Britain, have co-operated in seeking export opportunities for British hops. The world market for hops is, however, at present heavily oversupplied.
