asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what quantities and values of British beef have been sold in France and Belgium during 1961 to the latest convenient date; and to what extent such sales rank for the usual subsidies.

No separate figures are available for beef. The exports of fresh, chilled or frozen meat, including offal, during January-June, 1961, to France were 644 tons valued at £118,500 and to Belgium 607 tons valued at £103,600. It is not possible to say to what extent this meat was procured from animals which qualified for subsidy.
