asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what levies are at present being paid on wheat imports into the United Kingdom, giving amounts, types of wheat and country of origin.

Imports of durum wheat (CCT 10.01 B) from countries outside the Community into the United Kingdom are subject to a net import levy of £0·0393/cwt. The levy on durum wheat from Morocco or Turkey transported directly from those countries to the Community is reduced by £0·0126/cwt.

No levies are at present charged on imports of common wheat (CCT 10.01 A) from any country because of the effect of the monetary compensatory amount system which applies to common wheat only. The net refund on imports of common wheat from all countries outside the Community into the United Kingdom amounts to £0·0533/cwt. Imports of common wheat from other Community States are subject to the full mca refund of £0·320/cwt. The rates of levy and refund quoted are those in force on 8th May 1975.
