§ Mr. Deakins
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he expects to announce increased levies on imported meat.
§ Mr. Prior
There have been no levies on imports of beef and veal since minimum import prices were introduced in July, 1971. I have already announced my intention to raise the minimum import prices from 25th March next. Import duties at specific rates are charged on mutton and lamb. Details were announced in May, 1971.
