§ 6. Mr. PETO
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has imposed any restrictions on the export of feedingstuffs to Denmark; and whether, in view of the shortage and high price in this country which is resulting in the premature slaughter of pigs owing to the high cost of feeding them, he will consider what steps can be taken to give British pig-keepers and stock-keepers the first call of limited supplies of feedingstuffs that are available?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of AGRICULTURE (Sir Harry Verney)
The exportation of feedingstuffs is prohibited, and only limited quantities of those articles of which the supply in this country is most plentiful are allowed, under special licences, to be exported to Denmark.
