HC Deb 21 February 1911 vol 21 c1735

asked the President of the Local Government Board if he has definite information regarding the ultimate disposal of the 600 carcases of Chinese pigs which were condemned last year at Liverpool; were they burned, or buried, or otherwise destroyed, or were any of them sent away to the Isle of Man to be cured as bacon and re-imported into this country?


I understand from the medical officer of health that all the carcases were destroyed, the fat being used for lubricating purposes, and the rest of the carcase rendered into manure. The processes were under the supervision of an inspector of the local authority.
