§ Mr. Roebuck
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what consideration is being given by Her Majesty's Government to altering the cheap food policy.
§ Mr. Peart
Consumers and producers have been, and continue to be, well served by our long-standing policy of an open market for food and guaranteed prices for producers implemented by deficiency payments. These arrangements have been altered from time to time to meet changing circumstances, and I am constantly considering whether further changes are desirable.
