asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what are the amounts and value of surplus food in the Common Market; and what are the average amounts and values for each year since United Kingdom entry to the European Economic Community.

The information requested for each year since we joined the Community is not readily available. Information for 1978, 1979 and 1980 (to date) is being assembled and I shall reply to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
