HC Deb 12 June 1961 vol 642 c14W
Mr. Bullard

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will give an estimate of the effect, in the current financial year, of the increased quantities of imported Yugoslavian beef on the cost of the farm guarantee payments.

Mr. Soames

Imports of beef from Yugoslavia represented less than 1 per cent. of total supplies on the United Kingdom market in the first few months of this year and their effect on guarantee payments must be very small indeed.
