HC Deb 09 November 1978 vol 957 cc329-30W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what tonnage of beef and how many live cattle have been imported from Ireland through Welsh ports in each of the last 12 months.

Mr. Alec Jones

Annual statistics of meat imports into Welsh ports do not separately identify Irish beef. Two live cattle were imported from the Irish Republic via Welsh ports during the last 12 months.
