asked the Prime Minister whether it is proposed to institute any public inquiry into the condition of agriculture, including the question of the discrepancy between the price obtainable by the farmer for his produce and the cost to the consumer of the food made from it: and, if so, in what form the inquiry will be, and what will be the terms of reference?
I have been asked to reply. The whole of this subject is now under consideration. With regard to the specific question of discrepancy of prices, I would refer my Noble Friend to the answer I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for Frome.
