asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how much subsidised surplus agricultural produce was sold to United Kingdom voluntary organisations and institutions such as schools and hospitals in 1981, expressed in terms of volume and the value of the Community subsidies disbursed.

3,055 tonnes of intervention butter were sold to such organisations: the subsidy amounted to £2·35 million. A further 712 tonnes attracting subsidy of £0·55 million were drawn from commercial supplies when intervention stocks ran out.
