§ Mr. Wolrige-Gordon
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what effect the failure of the Brussels negotiations will have on any further attempts by this country to export beef and lamb to the Continent of Europe; and what plans he has to encourage this trade.
§ Mr. Scott-Hopkins
The Six have, as yet, no common policy for these commodities and the export situation remains unchanged. Exports are essentially a matter for the trade itself, but as the trade knows the services of this Ministry and the Board of Trade are fully available to exporters.
