HC Deb 12 April 1934 vol 288 cc484-5
51. Mr. HOLDSWORTH (for Mr. WHITE)

asked the Minister of Agriculture what steps he proposes to take to secure the appointment of the Pig Industry Development Board?


I have been asked to reply. A bacon development scheme has recently been submitted by the Pigs Marketing Board and the Bacon Marketing Board, and notice of submission was published in the London and Edinburgh Gazettes on Tuesday of this week. Copies of the Scheme, price 2d. post free, can be obtained from the Pigs Marketing Board or the Bacon Marketing Board, at Thames House, Millbank, S.W.1, or from the Scottish offices of the Boards, at 124, St. Vincent Street, Glasgow, C2., and 105, St. Vincent Street, Glasgow, C.2, respectively.

Viscountess ASTOR

Why does it all start from Glasgow when there are far more pigs in England than there are in Scotland?
