HC Deb 23 January 1918 vol 101 cc980-1
76. Mr. DIXON

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food if he is aware that during the next three months farmers and graziers will be buying in store cattle for feeding; if he can give some definite assurance that he will not alter his present fixed prices, at any rate before next Christmas, so that buyers of stores may know what to be at; and if he intends to regulate in any way the price or sale of store cattle?


The question of the regulation of the sale of store cattle is at present receiving the consideration of the Food Controller. It is hoped that it may shortly be possible to make a definite announcement with regard to the future maximum prices for fat cattle.


When will that announcement be made


I am sorry that I cannot give the exact date, but it Neill be shortly.
