HC Deb 27 April 1950 vol 474 cc1131-2
56. Mr. H. L. D'A. Hopkinson

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in considering the question of the removal of Defence Regulation 62B, he will have regard to the interests of the domestic rabbit-keepers who, through their rabbit clubs, are making a useful contribution to the food supplies of this country.

Mr. T. Williams

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Hopkinson

Is the Minister aware that many thousands of people belonging to these clubs, and mostly living in big towns, developed this business during the war as result of appeals from the Minister of Food and that if this regulation is not replaced they will run a risk of losing not only the results of many years' work but also a hobby which they value very much?

Mr. Williams

That is why my answer was, " Yes, Sir."
