§ 5. Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what percentage of the retail price difference between United Kingdom and Danish bacon can be attributed to the difference between £ sterling and the green pound.
§ Mr. Peart
Danish bacon usually sells at a premium over British bacon. The premium varies with market conditions but there is no obvious relationship between differences in the first-hand prices of Danish and British bacon and differences between the green pound and the market exchange rates for sterling or the resulting monetary compensatory amounts.
