asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if the Commission has now brought forward proposals for the revaluation of the deutschmark for purposes of the common agricultural policy; and to what extent common agricultural policy prices for the United Kingdom will be affected.

As part of the 1987 price fixing the Commission has proposed revaluation of the green deutschmark by 2·9 points for milk and milk products, 2·4 points for cereals, eggs and poultry, and 1·8 points for other sectors. Common agricultural policy support prices in the United Kingdom will not be affected by the adoption of this proposal.
