HC Deb 25 April 1958 vol 586 c106W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will give consideration to increasing from 9 cwt. to 10 cwt. the maximum weight for heifers to be eligible for quality payment.

Mr. John Hare

The present specifications and maximum weights for first quality steers and heifers were agreed with the three farmers' unions in March, 1957, and I can see no reason for changing them.
