asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will publish a comparison of United Kingdom-European Economic Commmunity threshold prices and world market prices at 21 May for each main agricultural commodity for each of the last five years including 1982.

I regret that it is not possible to provide information in the form requested in the time available. I shall reply to my hon. Friend as soon as possible. Meanwhile, information on prices of certain agricultural products for the years 1973–74 to 1979–80 is set out in table 19 of the agricultural situation in the Community 1980 report.
