§ Mr. Philips Price
asked the Minister of Food what is the present average price paid for cattle purchased in Ulster for slaughter; and how these prices compare with those paid to British farmers.
§ Mr. Strachey
The prices paid for cattle in Northern Ireland are the same as those paid in Great Britain with the exception of a negligible number of animals freshly imported from Eire for which approximately 2s. per live hundredweight less is paid than for similar animals in Great Britain. I will send my hon. Friend a copy of the price list showing the prices payable in Great Britain for each class and grade of animal.
