HC Deb 05 February 1941 vol 368 cc940-1
55. Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Supply what quantity of feeding-stuffs is now being collected for pigs weekly by local authorities in the London County Council area, and elsewhere, respectively; and whether there has been an increase or decrease in recent months?

Sir A. Duncan

The total amount of kitchen waste now being collected weekly by the 320 local authorities making special collections in England, Wales and Scotland is 2,250 tons, of which approximately 200 tons are collected in the London County Council area. The weekly tonnage collected in the London County Council area has remained constant over recent months.

Mr. Parker

How many pigs does that maintain?

Sir A. Duncan

I cannot say.
