HC Deb 16 March 1955 vol 538 cc125-6W
68. Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Food what stocks of frozen beef are still held by his Department; and if he will make a statement on the total supplies of frozen beef now available for consumption.

Dr. Hill

About 66,000 tons on 4th March. In addition, the trade holds a much smaller quantity of privately imported frozen beef. We have written to the butchers' organisations asking that customers' attention be drawn to the ample supplies of frozen beef now available.
