HC Deb 03 April 1987 vol 113 c635W
Mr. Best

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if extra funds will be made available to farmers to overcome the problems of extra cull cows coming on to the market; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

The Commission has the necessary powers to introduce extra support through the management committee if there is undue weakness in the beef market as a result of heavy cow cullings. The budgetary and expenditure forecasts include appropriate provisions for this.
