§ 52. Sir Waldron Smithers
asked the Minister of Agriculture what steps he proposes to take to encourage the poultry industry after the war.
I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement which I made in this House on Tuesday, which includes a special reference to the poultry industry.
§ Sir W. Smithers
Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that if the poultry industry is given a fair chance it will be a very important factor in food production in this country?
§ Mr. Evelyn Walkden
Is that statement intended to be related to the egg collecting scheme, so that poultry will reach the proper channels and, eventually, the retailers?
