HC Deb 27 January 1954 vol 522 c242W
93. Mr. Willey

asked the Minister of Food how much of the 238,000 tons of meat and offals which Argentina undertook to deliver were, in fact, delivered in 1953; and what arrangements have now been made for the delivery of meat from Argentina this year.

Major Lloyd George

About 175,000 tons. The balance is being delivered this year. The Trade and Payments Agreement of 1949 expires on 30th June, 1954, and negotiations are now taking place in respect of the remaining half year of the Agreement.
