§ 22. Mr. Charles Morrison
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what reduction he expects there will be in the scarcity of beef.
§ Mr. Morrison
Is the right hon. Gentleman expecting an increase in the price of milk? Secondly, will he do his utmost to ensure that his advisory officers use every means available to advise farmers on the best ways to cut down on the very considerable proportion of calves which die before they are reared or which are unsuitable cross-breeds for beef rearing?
§ Mr. Manuel
Could my right hon. Friend say how many matters in his Department need decision and the introduction of legislation? Would he say whether he considers this a direct reflection on the sloth and laxity of the previous Administration?
§ Mr. Deedes
In the course of the Review, will the Minister reconsider his refusal to consider carrying out trials in respect of the Sussex cattle?
