HC Deb 08 February 1985 vol 72 c702W
Mr. John

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will publish a table showing for each year since 1977 expenditue on (a) capital grants other than for the storage and drying of grain, (b) capital grants for the storage and drying of grain and (c) other grants made under the agricultural and horticultural co-operation scheme expressed in terms (i) of current prices and (ii) of constant prices.

Mr. MacGregor

I regret that the information could be provided in the form requested only at disproportionate cost. However the following information shows the amount and categories of grant recommendations made to Ministers by Food From Britain and its predecessor the Central Council for Agricultural and Horticultural Co-operation.
