asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what has been the average price of imported animal feedingstuffs in Northern Ireland in each of the last five years.

The average prices per ton of animal feedingstuffs imported into Northern Ireland in each of the last five years have been as follows:cereals for animal feeding is likely to be on the high side. The average figures are unlikely to give an accurate reflection of price movements from year to year because of changes in the proportions of the individual commodities in each group; for example, within the unmilled cereals group, the proportions of imported wheat, barley, maize etc., will have changed from one year to another and this affects the average price of this group.
