HC Deb 22 July 1980 vol 989 c659W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, pursuant to his reply on 23 July to the question tabled for priority written answer on 30 June, in which he explains that no meaningful estimates can be made of the subsidies paid on the export of 34,493 tonnes of beef to Eastern Europe excluding the USSR, he will make a statement explaining the manner in which these subsidies are paid out, and why it is not possible for an account to be kept of the payments actually made.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

I refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave him on 28 July 1980.
