I have been asked to reply. The numbers were 18,806 and 16,115, respectively.
§ 59. Mr. KIMBALL
asked the Minister of Agriculture the market price per live cwt. for fat cattle at the most convenient date, and the price on the same date in 1932?
§ Sir F. THOMSON
The average price per live cwt. of first quality fat cattle for the week ended 19th July at markets for which the Ministry obtains reports was 39s. 6d. as compared with 46s. 6d. for the corresponding week in 1932.

Can the hon. Gentleman give any indication when the Government will take action to restore the prices to something like the 1932 level?
