HC Deb 05 February 1962 vol 653 cc16-7
20. Mr. Prior

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what estimate he has made of the numbers of fat cattle for marketing in the period April to September, 1962; and how this compares with the figures for 1961.

Mr. Soames

I estimate that rather fewer fat cattle will be marketed in the period April-September, 1962, than in the same period in 1961—some 1,285,000 head as compared with 1,320,000 head.
