To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on the extent and impact of the proposals contained in the European Commission's White Paper, "Europe without frontiers; towards a large internal market", in so far as his Ministry is concerned.

I refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by my hon. Friend the Minister for Trade on 3 March at column 643. The proposals in the White Paper in which my Department has a particular interest include those relating to animal and plant health safeguards, animal feedingstuffs, plant varieties and seeds, plant protection products and labelling, composition, packaging and inspection of food.
