HC Deb 28 July 1983 vol 46 c593W
27. Mr. Hardy

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will take such measures as are available to him to improve the disparity in farm incomes between those who produce cereals and those livestock producers who are comparatively badly placed under the existing arrangements.

Mr. Jopling

I am aware of the need for further steps to improve the balance between the cereals and livestock sectors. I shall continue to bear this in mind when considering changes in United Kingdom or Community arrangements, and particularly in the negotiation of future levels of support prices.
