HC Deb 07 April 1948 vol 449 c159
43. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Minister of Food whether he will now announce the details of the increased allowance and prices of food that will be available for pigeons; and when the new scheme will come into operation.

Dr. Summerskill

The present arrangement, under which feedingstuffs for pigeons are issued to members of the National Pigeon Service, comes to an end on 24th September next. Revised arrangements, under which existing supplies will be more widely distributed, have been discussed with representatives of all Homing Unions, and an announcement will be made in due course.
