HC Deb 22 February 1934 vol 286 c507
43. Marquess of TITCHFIELD

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, having regard to the fact that imports of cattle from Canada since 1st January have been greater than in the corresponding period of last year and to the stabilisation arrangement announced by him on 20th December last, he has any statement to make on the subject?


His Majesty's Government in Canada have not found it possible to regulate imports on the basis of one quarter only. They have, however, agreed that the period of stabilisation should be extended to the first six months of this year. Under the revised arrangement, total arrivals of Canadian cattle during the months January to June, 1934, will be limited to the aggregate figure for the corresponding period of 1933.
