But agriculture minister Jo- seph Godber said he sees no reason in changing Britain'! policy.

Prime Minister Edward Heath should "swallow his pride and impose a standstill here too it would have the overwtelming support of every British Buchan said. But Godber told reporters ex- perience has shown that a price ceiling is set, the ceiling becomes the minimum. It also discourages imports which Britain needs to supplement home production, he said.
