Mr. Mark Hughes
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what are the present stocks of beef in cold-store; and how that figure compares with 12 months earlier.
§ Mr. Anthony Stodart
There were some 21,400 tons of imported beef in public cold stores on 26th January, the latest date on which full information is available. This compares with some 18,200 tons a year ago.
