HC Deb 11 April 1938 vol 334 cc767-8W
Mr. Barnes

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can make a statement regarding the activities of the International Meat Council; and whether he proposes to lay before Parliament an annual report relating to the activities of this body?

Captain Wallace

As the House is aware, the International Beef Conference was established last year by agreement between this country and the other countries represented on it to advise upon the quantities of beef to be shipped to this country from overseas. I do not know whether the conference proposes to make an annual report to the constituent Governments.
