HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 cc204-5W
Mr. Bessell

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will now increase the guaranteed price for beef to meet the increasing demand and to ease the probable expansion of milk production.

Mr. Peart

Any alteration in the guaranteed price for beef is a matter for the Annual Review. When the National Plan was published we said that, in making the determinations on guaranteed prices and relevant production grants at future Reviews, the Government would take account of the expansion programme which they wished the industry to undertake, as well as of all other relevant factors.
