asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is his policy for encouraging food exports and for eliminating non-tariff barriers; and if he will make a statement.

Food exporters make a valuable contribution to the economic performance of this country. They will continue to have our full support and encouragement. My Department works closely with other Departments and with British posts overseas, as well as with industry, trade associations and other bodies concerned, in seeking to foster exports. My right hon. Friend will continue, in concert with the Community institutions as appropriate, to press for the elimination of non-tariff barriers imposed by other countries.
