MEAT MEAL EXPORTS TO BE LIMITED

The Minister for Primary Industry, Mr Ian Sinclair, announced

today that he had issued instructions to his Department to

limit the volume of exports of meat meal.

This protein meal, used extensively in the feeding of pigs and

poultry, is currently in short supply in Australia and

particularly in N.S.W. and Victoria. The shortage is largely ■

due to the reduction in slaughterings at abattoirs.

Mr Sinclair said that his Department would be closely monitoring

the situation. However the restrictions on exports would

continue until the needs of Australia's domestic industries

were met.
