HC Deb 15 June 1936 vol 313 cc625-6
24. Mr. HANNAH

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that the flooding of the market with foreign rabbits has made it impossible for British farmers to sell their own, although it produces no apparent lowering of the cost to the consumer; and whether he will take steps to exclude the unneeded foreign supply?


I am aware that there has been a marked increase in imports of fresh rabbits, but this has been mainly caused by larger imports from the Irish Free State. As regards the last part of the question, the answer is in the negative.
