§ Mr. Donald Thompson
Stores used by the Intervention Board and the commodities stored are as follows. The grain stores at Chichester, Clifton, Dumfries, Gainsborough, Kidderminster, Louth, North Humberside and Whitchurch are Government owned; all the others are commercial stores in which the board has hired space.
As the monthly notes deposited in the Library of the House indicate, there has been a very substantial reduction since 1985–86 in the volume of stocks of agricultural commodities held in intervention in this country.
