§ 34. Mr. H. WILLIAMS
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that the imports of beef in November, 1934, were 1,096,479 cwts., an increase of 157,750 cwts. or nearly 17 per cent. as compared with November, 1933; and can he now announce what steps he proposes to take to deal with the steadily-growing competition with the British livestock industry?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
The figures for imports of beef in November are as stated. With regard to the second part of the question, I have nothing to add to the answer I gave to my hon. Friend on 5th November.
§ Mr. WILLIAMS
Will the right hon. Gentleman indicate when he expects to be able to give a definite answer?
