HC Deb 23 February 1995 vol 255 c311W
25. Mr. Mike O'Brien

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on veal exports.

Mrs. Browning

Veal production in this country has been estimated by the Meat and Livestock Commission at under 500 tonnes in 1993 and, therefore, exports are very limited. I shall be opening a MAFF seminar tomorrow to look at the prospects for developing the market for veal from welfare-friendly husbandry systems like those in this country, including exports.
