London, August 02 (ANI): The Food and Farming minister of UK, who manages the 7.2 billion pound farming industry, doesn’t even know the price of a loaf of bread.

Also the Environment Secretary, Spelman issued a memo to officials in her department asking them to tell her the price of an average loaf. The instruction came in a 19-page briefing to staff in the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).

“The odd figure is helpful. Include examples of the price of a loaf of bread,” the Telegraph quoted Caroline as writing.

The price of a loaf of bread in the UK is currently between 1.30 to 1.40 pounds. (ANI)
