HC Deb 04 July 1983 vol 45 c47W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if any statistics are available which show the percentage increases which have occurred in the cost of those foodstuffs which are, and are not, subject to the controls and price mechanisms of the common agricultural policy since 1973 and since 1979, respectively; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. MacGregor

Since the impact of the common agricultural policy varies considerably between different foodstuffs, it is not possible to make the clear distinction between foodstuffs which would be required for the provision of such statistics.
