HC Deb 04 March 1942 vol 378 c646
57. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he will consider the advisability of the rationing of horseflesh and other foodstuffs for dogs and cats?

Major Lloyd George

No, Sir.

Mr. Sorensen

Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that some women who are working long hours complain that they cannot get suitable foodstuffs for their domestic pets?

Major Lloyd George

The hon. Gentleman will appreciate that this would mean setting up more machinery. It would, for instance, be rather difficult to try and make a census of cats.
