HC Deb 21 March 1961 vol 637 c38W
Sir A. Hurd

asked the Secretary of State for War how much Argentine beef was purchased for the Army last year; and what was the estimated saving in cost compared with the purchase of home-produced meat.

Mr. Profumo

I regret that the information is not available. Provided the beef comes from approved countries of origin (of which the Argentine is one), the source of particular consignments is not recorded.
