§ 68. Sir J. NALL
asked the Minister of Agriculture what quantity of bacon has been produced in the United Kingdom during the present year to the latest available date; and what quantities were produced in the corresponding periods of 1933 and 1934?
§ Mr. RAMSBOTHAM
The quantity of bacon produced in the United Kingdom in the first ten months of this year is estimated at 2,387,000 cwt. The corresponding figure for 1934 is 1,797,000 cwt. These figures do not include the output of small curers not registered under the Great Britain Bacon Marketing Scheme. I regret that I have not any corresponding information for 1933.
