HC Deb 31 July 1974 vol 878 c217W
Mr. Biffen

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if Her Majesty's prisons are among the institutions entitled to cut price beef under the latest Common Market proposals for reducing community beef stocks.

Dr. Summerskill

I understand that a Community scheme for the sale of beef to non-profit-making institutions is under consideration and the necessary measures to implement this scheme in the United Kingdom are in preparation. But the precise scope of these arrangements and the institutions to benefit has yet to be decided.
