§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what was the value at constant prices of fruit and vegetables (a) grown in the United Kingdom and (b) imported into the United Kingdom in 1960 and 1977, respectively.
§ Mr. Strang
The following are estimates of value at 1975 average prices:
£ million 1960 1977 Supplies of fruit and vegetables (a) grown in the United Kingdom 385 445 (b) imported into the United Kingdom 615 790 Notes: (a) The figures for United Kingdom production exclude potatoes. (b) Import values are derived by linking successive index numbers of volume and multiplying by the value of trade in 1975; the figures are therefore approximations. They include imported potatoes because these cannot be separated in the index numbers.
