HC Deb 26 February 1930 vol 235 cc2242-3

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Dominion. Affairs whether it is the intention of the Empire Marketing Board to consider the recommendations contained in the Second Interim Report of the Pig Industry Council with a view to increasing the consumption of home-produced pig-meat?


The recommendations contained in the Report in question were addressed primarily to the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries and not to the Empire Marketing Board. A substantial annual grant to the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries is provided out of the Empire Marketing Fund for the improvement of methods of marketing home produce, but the Empire Marketing; Board is not in general directly concerned with the carrying out of any recommendations to that end.
