§ Mr. Bayley
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans his Department has to review the decision to sell the United Kingdom's share of the buffer stock of cocoa beans in the light of the New York Coffee, Sugar and Cocoa Exchange's takeover bid for the London Commodity Exchange. 
§ Mr. Baldry
None. The question of any possible future changes in the London Commodity Exchange has no bearing on the decision to liquidate the cocoa buffer stock.
