HC Deb 01 December 1919 vol 122 c41
78. Major-General Sir N. MOORE

asked the Food Controller whether, in view of the fact that there is such a plentiful supply of home-grown meat and more than enough frozen meat now in warehouses on shore and afloat to meet the wants of the Ministry of Food for some months to come, he will take steps to discontinue rationing and the maintenance of the present high prices for meat?


The Food Controller, in consultation with the President of the Board of Trade and the President of the Board of Agriculture, is considering what measures can usefully be taken to relieve the present congestion. I am not in a position to make any announcement at the moment, but I desire to point out that there are at present no restrictions whatever on the amount of meat which a registered customer may obtain from his butcher.
