Global food costs

Asked if the summit on global food prices would just be a talking shop, or would there be something tangible coming out of it, the PMS replied that there was a wide range of people attending including the Head of the World Food Programme, as well as a number of experts in this area. Obviously this was a global issue, but this did have an impact domestically on the UK. The meeting would be focused on what action could be taken in order to deal with this global problem. The Prime Minister wrote to his G8 colleagues a couple of weeks ago setting out a potential plan of action that could be taken in the run up to the G8 meeting in July.
