asked the Minister of Agriculture how much more in the aggregate farmers will have to pay for concentrated feedingstuffs in the current financial year, on the assumption that there is no reduction in the amount purchased.

Nearly £27 million, of which approximately £23 million will relate to livestock products subject to guaranteed prices.


asked the Minister of Agriculture how much the average cost of production of milk in the north-western area will rise as a result of the increased prices for feedingstuffs.

I have no information for the north-western area alone, but for Great Britain as a whole the cost increase is estimated as about 1⅝ per gallon.
