HC Deb 14 June 1971 vol 819 c29W
72. Mr. Brewis

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will seek an agreement with Cyprus to phase-in the imports of early potatoes so that a glut is not caused on the United Kingdom market.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

Cyprus potatoes largely satisfy a special demand and would not by themselves be responsible for any over-supply. Nevertheless the Potato Marketing Board exerts an influence on the level of marketings through regular meetings with representatives of Cypriot producers.
