§ Mr. Soames
Exports to the Continent of Europe of live cattle, other than cattle for breeding, over the four years 1960 to 1963 totalled 85,800 head. Figures distinguishing exports of beef and of other kinds of meat are not available for the whole of this period. The amount of subsidy paid on these exports cannot be calculated since not all of the animals or carcases would qualify for guarantee payments and the rates of payment vary from week to week. The greater part of the exports was however of animals that would not have been eligible for subsidy.
