HC Deb 15 April 1907 vol 172 cc613-4

I beg to ask the hon. Member for Mid-Derbyshire, as Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, if he buys vaccinated veal for the House of Commons; and, if not, will he endeavour to purchase some if the price is moderate.

SIR J. A. JACOBY (Derbyshire, Mid.)

No vaccinated veal is supplied to the House of Commons. I am informed that the veal that has the lymph taken from it is very dark in colour and on being cooked becomes quite black. I must decline to comply with the hon. Member's request.
