HC Deb 23 July 1918 vol 108 c1641
76. Mr. ALDEN

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether there is any prospect of a lower price being fixed for bacon and ham in the near future?


The price of bacon and ham to the consumer in this country is largely governed by the cost of those commodities in North America. This is one of the matters now being discussed between the inter-Allied Food Controllers, and I cannot at the moment make any definite statement.
