§ 51. Mr. P. Browne
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he will announce proposals for standard quantities for beef and cereals; if he will establish a workable import policy for all foodstuffs before doing so; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Soames
Cereals and meat are the commodities which need attention. I have already announced arrangements covering bacon supplies. Consultations on standard quantities and import controls which taken together form the Government's proposals for other meats and cereals are still in progress. I am not yet able to say when I will be able to make a further announcement.
