The autonomous beef quota that I outlined in my reply to Parliamentary Question No. 376 of 8 May 2018, which was designed to allow the US to export hormone-free beef to the EU, also had to be made available to other countries who could satisfy the technical requirements, in accordance with WTO rules.

The other countries that can access this quota are Argentina, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Uruguay.
