asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what recent discussion he has had with British apple producers on the further steps needed to increase their share in the United Kingdom market.

We have already taken action on some of the recommendations contained in the report, and where further action can be initiated by the Government we shall press forward with it urgently.
