To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (1) what steps she is taking to encourage suppliers to make greater use of domestically produced organic produce; and if she will make a statement; 
(2) what studies she has made of the organic produce and supply industry in the UK; and if she will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Morley
