HC Deb 17 July 1980 vol 988 c648W
36. Mr. Lang

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans he has to ensure that the autumn sales of store sheep are not disadvantaged by the late implementation of the common sheepmeat agreement.

Mr. Peter Walker

The Council decided that the proposed sheep regime will come into effect when agreements have been negotiated with third country suppliers for voluntary restraint on their exports to the Community. The arrangements for implementing the regime in the United Kingdom are under consideration and I shall make an announcement as soon as I can.
