HC Deb 21 February 1963 vol 672 c93W
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.
