§ 24. Mr. LIDDALL
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is now able to state the Government's policy for dealing with pigs, meat, barley, and oats?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Sir John Gilmour)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the announcement I made in the House on 11th February last, and to subsequent statements with regard to the Government's agricultural policy, to which I am not at present in a position to add.
§ Lieut.-Colonel ACLAND-TROYTE
Is not my right hon. Friend aware of the serious condition of the meat trade and pig trade; that breeding sows are being killed off wholesale; that while the raw material is taxed, the finished article— bacon—comes in free; and will he not take some immediate action?
