§ 61. Sir J. Duncan
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he is aware that the Australian Government have banned the importation of all livestock from this country into Australia from next May, and that this will have a serious effect on our export trade in pedigree cattle; and what steps he is taking to reopen this market.
§ Mr. Godber
My right hon. Friend understands that the ban to which my hon. Friend refers is to take effect as from 1st June next. We have expressed our concern to the Australian Government and have made certain suggestions for their consideration.
