HC Deb 22 April 1926 vol 194 c1371
30. Mr. HURD

asked the Minister of Health if, in pursuance of the Government's injunction to buy British goods, he will invite boards of guardians to make a practice of seeking tenders for home-fed meat as well as imported, so that the relative quality and price may be fairly judged?


This is, of course, a matter within the discretion of boards of guardians, but I may say that I have recently again circularised all local authorities, including boards of guardians, emphasising the help that may be given to British trade if local authorities will purchase British goods where reasonably practicable.
