asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations he has received from producers of wheat seed in Britain about the effects on the industry of the growth of equivalent subsidised imports; what import quotas are currently in force; and if he will make a statement.

I have received no such representations. There are no quotas for imports of wheat seed into the United Kingdom. The level of imports from third countries is negligible compared with total production of wheat seed in this country.
