HC Deb 09 May 1983 vol 42 c206W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will estimate the cost to agriculture in Wales of the failure to reach agreement in Luxembourg recently on agricultural livestock prices for the period from 1 April 1983.

Mr. John Stradling Thomas

It is not possible to make such an estimate due to uncertainties in market price levels, stock presented for sale, and the final level of support prices which will be fixed for 1983–84.
