HC Deb 17 March 1983 vol 39 c250W
18. Mr. Torney

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will take steps to improve the profitability and secure the long-term future of the poultrymeat and egg industries; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

Profitability of poultry and egg producers will largely depend on achieving and maintaining a satisfactory balance between supply and demand, together with efficient marketing of the products concerned.
