HC Deb 31 January 1995 vol 253 cc642-3W
Mr. Colvin

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what he is doing to develop alternatives to export for surplus calves from dairy farms.

Mrs. Browning

I hope that, over time, farmers can have a greater opportunity of finding more markets at home for their animals and that as much as possible of the export trade can be in meat. I met the Meat and Livestock Commission on 19 January to discuss these possibilities.
