§ 80. Mr. Gourlay
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many clean home-bred cattle, Irish cattle, and sheep, respectively, have been exported to Europe since 1st January, 1964, to the latest available date; and what were the figures for the corresponding period in 1963.
§ Mr. Noble
Between 1st January and 29th February, 1964, 737 clean cattle were exported to the European mainland from Scottish ports. No clean cattle were exported during the comparable period of 1963 and no sheep were exported in either period. No distinction is made in the export statistics between home-bred and Irish cattle.
