asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what was the total amount of foodstuffs held in European Economic Community intervention stores, expressed in tons, at the most recent date for which comprehensive figures are available; and what were the comparable totals for each of the previous 10 years.

The following table gives the information required, in tonnes, for foodstuffs held in European Community public intervention stores at the end of each year since 1973. I regret that information for 1971 and 1972 is not readily available.
