HC Deb 04 July 1983 vol 45 c45W
Mr. Hordern

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will negotiate with European Ministers to use grain held in stock by the European Commission for the benefit of British pig producers.

Mr. MacGregor

Substantial quantities of wheat and barley have been sold from United Kingdom intervention stocks in recent weeks, and pig producers have access to these additional supplies. Negotiations are in progress on arrangements for making intervention wheat available for animal feed next season.
