52. Mr. Drayson

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make an annual monetary grant to the Livestock Export Council of Great Britain.

Mr. Soames

No. The Government already assist the Livestock Export Council in various ways. We advise on veterinary problems; we seek out and pass on information of overseas interest in British livestock; the Board of Trade's Export Services are available at home and overseas; Export Credits Guarantee Department is able and willing to cover livestock export trade, and we assist with trade fairs and exhibitions overseas.
