asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will provide a complete list of United Kingdom and European Community agricultural produce in public intervention and assisted private storage in England and their value at the latest available date.

CommodityTonnes£ million
Breadmaking wheat81,07210·71
Skimmed Milk Powder29,94130·73
