§ 37. Mr. Moreing
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that bacon curers in Northern Ireland are sending largely increased quantities of offals for sale into this country, and, as this will jeopardise the success of any factory rationalisation scheme under the Bacon Industry Act, what steps he proposes to take to stop this procedure; and whether he will approach the Government of Northern Ireland with a view to instituting a factory rationalisation scheme in Northern Ireland?
§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
Such information as is available does not support the suggestion that curers in Northern Ireland are sending largely increased quantities of pig offals for sale in Great Britain and I have no reason to suppose that a factory rationalisation scheme under the Bacon Industry Bill is likely to be endangered by this trade.
