§ 35. Sir Peter Mills
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many fat sheep either in carcase form or live were exported to France in the last month; and what were the comparable figures for the last two years.
§ Mr. Buchanan-Smith
Trade statistics are not yet available for October 1982. The comparison requested has therefore been made for September. The figures (in tonnes carcase weight, including carcase equivalent of live exports) are:
Tonnes September 1980 9 September 1981 2,021 September 1982 1,021
