HC Deb 09 February 1971 vol 811 c94W
80. Mr. Wellbeloved

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is yet in a position to make a statement on his talks with the meat industry aimed at imposing a meat tax.

Mr. Prior

Discussions on the proposed interim levy schemes are still taking place with the other Governments and domestic interests concerned. Until they are completed it is not possible to make a statement.
