To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps are being taken to improve the marketing of agricultural produce domestically and abroad.

Mr. Waldegrave

The new marketing development scheme, launched on 15 June, provides £10 million-worth of assistance over the next three years to help develop new marketing ideas. Abroad, assistance to United Kingdom exporters is given by Food From Britain. Our export promotion division also helps the industry to identify new overseas markets.
