§ 27. Mr. LOOKER
asked the Minister of Agriculture what proportions of the beef, mutton, and pork requisite for the food supply of the country are supplied from stock reared in this country?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Guinness)
It is estimated that about 31 per cent. of the beef and veal, 36 per cent. of the mutton and lamb and 36 per cent. of the pig-meat consumed in Great Britain is supplied by home-bred animals.
§ Mr. LOOKER
Is the right born Gentleman aware that if those who rear home-grown stock were assured of continuity of policy, as regards restrictions on importation of foreign meat, they would be encouraged to extend their activities and more fully meet the home demand?
