HC Deb 17 March 1947 vol 435 c20W
80. Mr. King

asked the Minister of Transport the average trans-Atlantic freight rate paid per head of cattle in any convenient month of 1938 and 1947. respectively.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

I understand that my hon. Friend has in mind imports from Canada. In 1938 the rate of freight on cattle imported into this country from Canada averaged between 60s. and 70s. per head. No current rate is available as there has been no shipment of cattle from Canada to the United Kingdom during 1947.
