HC Deb 15 February 1940 vol 357 c983W
Mr. Craven-Ellis

asked the Minister of Food what proportion of the imports of chilled beef from the Dominions is imported through the same channels as Argentine meat?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

Since the war, chilled beef has not been shipped to this country, and the information required as regards the pre-war period is not available. It is, however, known that of the chilled beef supplies that reached this country from the Dominions before the war, a large proportion was consigned by the same shippers as were engaged in this trade from Argentina.
