§ 23. Mr. Livsey
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations he has received about present prices for beef cattle; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Donald Thompson
I have received no recent representations about prices for beef cattle. Throughout 1988 prices have been markedly above those for 1987. Producers' expectations of higher prices have also been reflected in prices for calves and store cattle.
