§ 21. Sir HUGH SEELY
asked the Minister of Agriculture what steps he proposes taking to provide against the shortage of bacon which is threatened as a result of the Bacon Marketing Board's failure to secure the minimum number of contracts for pigs under the 1937 contracts?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Mr. W. S. Morrison)
As the hon. Member will be aware, the period within which contracts may be made has been extended until 14th December. In any case no question of a shortage of bacon arises, since total supplies can be maintained at the existing level by adjustment of imports.
