HC Deb 12 May 1947 vol 437 c1079
55. Mrs. Middleton

asked the Minister of Agriculture when the additional supplies of hard corn for poultry breeding purposes are to be made available this season.

Mr. T. Williams

The increased rations for poultry, including poultry breeding stock, came into operation on 1st May. I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of the announcement. A proportion of hard corn may be obtained, if desired, against the monthly cereal coupons and the chick food coupons issued to poultry keepers eligible for rations.

Mrs. Middleton

While I thank the Minister for that reply, can he say when this will be available in the South Western district?

Mr. Williams

The increased rations were made available on 1st May
