HC Deb 09 July 1968 vol 768 c50W
Mr. Hooson

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what percentage of Great Britain's canned meat imports is known to have been exported to the canning country from the United Kingdom in corned beef form initially.

Mr. Hoy

The available statistics do not show to what extent canned meat imports contain meat in specific forms from specific sources, but our requirements ensure that the source must in all cases be one from which the meat could, under our public health regulations, have come directly to the United Kingdom.
