HC Deb 01 April 1963 vol 675 c12W
88. Mr. Wolrige-Gordon

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the present position in regard to the production of bull beef in this country.

Mr. Scott-Hopkins

Friend and the Secretary of State for Scotland have recently made arrangements to assist farmers to carry out a limited number of trials to discover whether the production of beef from young bulls is a practicable and commercial proposition in this country.
