HC Deb 04 December 1906 vol 166 c739

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he can say what proportion of refrigerated meat imported into the United Kingdom is controlled by the United States Beef Trust.

(Answered by Mr. Lloyd-George.) Taking the average of the last five years, a little over half of the fresh beef imported into the United Kingdom has come from the United States. I am unable to say what proportion of this was controlled by the Beef Trust.
