HC Deb 26 April 1950 vol 474 c956
56. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Food what success he has had in his negotiations with the Irish Minister of Agriculture with the object of improving the national food supply.

Mr. Webb

The discussions are not yet concluded.

Mr. Hector Hughes

Can the Minister say what kinds of food were discussed, and whether he is aware of the importance of speed in this matter lest he may be forestalled by agreements being concluded with some other Governments?

Mr. Webb

Yes. We are discussing eggs, and bacon arriving in this country on the trotter, rather than in bacon form.

Mr. Mitchison

Are there any Irish bulls?
