§ 37. Mr. Shersby
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how the accession of Spain and Portugal into the European Economic Community will affect the supply of almonds and hazelnuts to United Kingdom food manufacturers.
§ Mrs. Fenner
United Kingdom food manufacturers will benefit from the reduction in tariffs on almonds and hazelnuts imported from Spain and Portugal. This will be progressively implemented during the transitional period following accession.
