HC Deb 27 April 1998 vol 311 c31W
Mr. Tyler

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations he has received following the March 1998 inquiry by the BBC Radio 4 programme, "Farming Today", into retail profits on beef sales; and if he will make a statement. [39652]

Mr. Rooker

Although we have had representations from beef producers, who consider that the fall in producer prices has not been reflected in retail prices for beef, no one has raised specific concerns about the inquiry by the BBC Radio 4 programme, "Farming Today". We will continue to monitor movements in beef producer prices and in meat prices at retail level.
