§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (1) what is his latest estimate of beef and veal prices following entry to the European Economic Community;
(2) what is his latest estimate of the prices of live calves following entry to the European Economic Community.459W
§ Mrs. Fenner
We have now agreed on transitional arrangements and initial guide prices in the beef sector in the United Kingdom when the provisions of the common agricultural policy are introduced next February. Since prices of beef, veal and calves will continue to be governed by market forces, it is not possible to make precise forecasts.
