§ 1. Mr. BOSSOM
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if, in view of the straits in which our stock raisers find themselves, he will require the use of home-grown beef for that portion of the Army stationed in Great Britain or, if this is not possible at this time, will he try the experiment in one camp for a fixed period to see if the same is not more desirable than using imported beef?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Duff Cooper)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave on the 5th December, 1933, to the hon. Member for Dorset East (Mr. Hall-Caine). The position has not altered materially since that date.
§ Mr. BOSSOM
Will the hon. Member give consideration to the fact that British beef contracts less than imported beef and contains much more nutriment?
