HC Deb 30 November 1948 vol 458 c1783
Colonel Gomme-Duncan

Mr. Speaker, with your leave, I beg to present a Petition signed by 530,000 housewives of Great Britain as follows: To the Honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled. We, united housewives of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, hereby place on record our dissatisfaction with the quality and quantity of meat which is available. Wherefore, we, your Petitioners, pray that the Government shall take immediate and active measures to provide a fuller ration of fresh and varied meat and a larger share of unrationed meats, such as liver, and sausages of fuller meat content. And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. Petition to lie upon the Table.
