HC Deb 19 March 1998 vol 308 c726W
10. Mr. Baldry

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what evaluation his Department has made of the impact of the current levels of the green pound on farms incomes. [33762]

Dr. John Cunningham

The Government recognise the impact of currency movements on agriculture, but it is difficult to assess these effects precisely. UK farmers receive a substantial degree of protection from the impact of currency movements on their receipts under the CAP through the EU agrimonetary system.
