Food prices

Asked if there would be any further actions regarding the food prices, the PMS said that this was clearly something that the Prime Minister and the Government was concerned about; the Prime Minister had written to the Head of G7 and the heads of major national organisations regarding the problems faced by food prices. It was something that we had put on the agenda internationally and that we would continue to discuss and take forward with our international colleagues in the days and weeks ahead.

Asked if the subject would come up during the Prime Minister’s trip to the US, the PMS replied that it would come up as part of the Prime Minister’s general discussions on the global economy while he was in the US. It was also something that the Chancellor had been talking about at the meetings of the IMF and World Bank over the weekend.
