asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he is satisfied that the effect of the existing price structure for beef is not to discourage the breeding of high quality cattle?
I have no reason to believe that the existing price structure discourages the breeding of high quality cattle.
Is it not a fact that the quality of beef cattle has steadily deteriorated during the past two years?
I think that matter would be one for the Minister of Agriculture.
I beg to give notice that I will raise this matter on the Adjournment.
