§ 25. Sir J. Gilmour
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what quantities of meat from South America he estimates will be imported into this country in each of the first eight weeks after the lifting of the ban imposed by him at the time of the foot-and-mouth disease epidemic.
§ Sir J. Gilmour
As the Argentine is now refusing to send beef and as the Joint Parliamentary Secretary has just said that our own beef supplies are going down, is the right hon. Gentleman confident that he should not now review his rice Review award for beef cattle?
§ Sir G. Nabarro
As the ban on the import of beef carcases is to be lifted on 15th April, what evidence does the right hon. Gentleman have that Uruguay and contiguous countries will not send us their piled up carcases saved up there throughout the period of the ban on imports here?
