HC Deb 17 December 1987 vol 124 c729W
48. Dr. Moonie

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the level of wheat, barley and oats production he projects for the United Kingdom in 1988.

Mr. Donald Thompson

Given the significance of the weather for cereals yields, it is not possible to produce a reliable forecast of United Kingdom cereals production before the harvest.
