HC Deb 19 April 1990 vol 170 c974W
51. Mr. Geraint Howells

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on the present state of the sheep industry.

Mr. Curry

Prices and exports of lamb are well above the levels of the corresponding period in 1989. The increase in exports suggests that the industry is already taking advantage of the opportunities offered by the new sheepmeat regime.
