Orders of the Day — Horticulture (17 Mar 1975)

Hereford College of Education (27 Mar 1975)

The subject I wish to raise is the future of the Hereford College of Education, a matter of great concern not only, it seems, to nearly every one of my constituents but also...

European Community (Agriculture and Fisheries) (17 Oct 1975)

Mr Colin Shepherd: The common agricultural policy has come in for a tremendous amount of criticism from both sides of the House. Along with other hon.

Common Agricultural Policy (12 Feb 1976)

Mr Colin Shepherd: The common agricultural policy is the absolute linchpin of the EEC and it must work to the benefit of the producer and the consumer even-handedly throughout the nine member countries.

I should like...
