Sheep Meat: Imports

Question for Wales Office

UIN 904906, tabled on 5 January 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, what recent assessment he has made of the potential effect on the Welsh lamb industry of the end of US restrictions on the import of British lamb.

The lifting of this ban is fantastic news and brings Welsh farmers one step closer to putting their first-class lamb on US menus for the first time in 20 years.

Farmers will now be able to reach a new market of over 300 million people. This win will support vital jobs and growth in Wales.
