asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will set out in the Official Report the latest available figures showing the comparison for the European Economic Community as a whole and for the United Kingdom separately between production and consumption, excluding intervention, quantities in the following items; common wheat, barley, sugar, butter, skimmed milk, eggs and beef.

listing as a European Commission birds directive special protection area and Ramsar convention site the following estuaries: (a) Morecambe Bay, (b) River Orwell, Suffolk and (c) the Wash.

[pursuant to her reply, 3 May 1985, c. 275]: My Department has not been approached about the listing of the first two of these sites. In relation to the Wash, we have expressed the view that any decision on listing should not be taken in advance of decisions on an overall strategy for the area.
