asked the Minister of Food if he will state the total amount of sausages per week offered by Eire; and if agreement has been reached on this offer.

We had one offer of about 400 pounds weight per week; we are now awaiting samples.

Is it the case that substantial offers have been made to fly sausages over, and in view of the scarcity of sausages here, will the right hon. Lady see that her Department considers such offers sympathetically?

Certainly, Sir. We are prepared to receive samples by air, but I am sure that my hon. Friend will agree that they must comply with certain meat content requirements.
