asked the Secretary of State for Trade what weight is being given in formulating the Government's attitude towards an EEC sheepmeat policy to the fact that further restrictions on the imports of sheepmeat from Australia and New Zealand could severely damage the United Kingdom's maritime trade in the transportation of refrigerated sheepmeat from these countries.
