HC Deb 27 November 1946 vol 430 c1609
55. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Food why he has fixed a lower price for the purchase of turkeys from Eire than from other countries; and if he will remove price controls, and allow the normal channels of trade to operate.

Dr. Summerskill

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply on these matters, given to the hon. Members for West Walthamstow (Mr. McEntee) and East Ealing (Sir F. Sanderson) on 18th November, of which I am sending him a copy.

Sir W. Smithers

Can the hon. Lady say whether preferential treatment has been given to Eire?

Dr. Summerskill

Yes, Sir, certainly.
