HC Deb 19 October 1939 vol 352 c1039
37. Sir Percy Hurd

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the necessity of increased home production, he will request local housing authorities to suspend, for the period of the war, any restrictions they may have imposed upon the keeping of pigs and poultry by their tenants?

Mr. Elliot

I am considering the issue of a circular on the subject to local authorities.

Sir P. Hurd

Has the Minister received a list of the authorities which still maintain this refusal to allow tenants to keep pigs and poultry, and is he making direct representations to those local authorities?

Mr. Elliot

I am sending out a circular to all local authorities.
