HC Deb 30 October 1990 vol 178 c423W
Dr. David Clark

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, further to his answer to the hon. Member for South Shields of 25 October, about products released from intervention, if he will list the countries which bought the produce listed and the quantities in each case.

Mr. Gummer

Exporters who take products from intervention are not required to sell to particular countries but are free to find markets outside the European Community. Community arrangements allow exporters up to one year to supply proof of export. Consequently, information about the destinations of the products released from intervention in the 12 months to 30 September 1990 is not available.
