§ 28. Mr. Kirkwood
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he next plans to meet the Scottish National Farmers Union to discuss the problems confronting beef producers in Scotland.
§ Mr. John MacKay
I discussed the present state of the beef sector with the president of the National Farmers Union of Scotland when we met on 13 February. The union will have a further opportunity for a discussion with my right hon. and learned Friend and me when we attend its AGM this week.
