But if they raise their eyes above the horizon of Britain and of the EEC, they will see that there is a Food Price Crisis in many other parts of the world which have nothing to do with the EEC.

That is precisely what the Government are giving away this year to the rich in reduced taxes on unearned income - a perverse order of priorities at a time of Food Price Crisis.

I hope that the Minister can respond on this matter, because there have been reports of some EU countries wishing to use the Food Price Crisis to reverse the reform direction of the CAP and argue that we should increase subsidies, rather than trying to phase them out.
