HC Deb 13 April 1964 vol 693 cc14-5W
71. Mr. Kelley

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will take steps to ensure that all subsidies paid on livestock which are eventually exported from this country should be refunded to Her Majesty's Treasury.

Mr. Soames

No. The fatstock guarantee payments are intended to ensure that the producer receives a guaranteed price when selling on our free market.
