The supermarket ASDA has responded to the NFU Scotland claim that the levels of British lamb in some Scottish supermarkets is lower than that of imported lamb.
In a statement they say:
"Clearly someone's numbers don't add up here. As it stands more than 80 per cent of our fresh lamb range is sourced from British farmers and we will sell 10% more British sourced lamb this year than in 2011.
"As we move further into the British lamb season that figure will only increase. "Our support of the lamb industry in this country is beyond doubt.”
