§ 20. Mr. John Carlisle
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is his policy on the reduction of cereal surpluses.
§ Mr. Gummer
I shall continue to pursue a policy of bringing cereals production more into line with demand by continuing price restraint, including through the application of automatic stabilisers, supporting measures to make intervention a safety net rather than an alternative market outlet and promoting the diversion of land out of cereals.
