HC Deb 24 July 1950 vol 478 c14
18. Mr. Thornton-Kemsley

asked the Minister of Food what arrangements he proposes for the reopening of suitable private slaughter houses to facilitate the handling and conditioning of the anticipated extra cattle and sheep during the peak kill.

Mr. Webb

This problem will be considered by the seven area advisory committees which have been set up to advise about these Autumn arrangements. These committees represent the meat trade, the farmers' unions and the slaughtering industry. I am confident they will provide adequate plans.

Mr. Thornton-Kemsley

Does the Minister expect to receive proposals from these bodies very shortly?

Mr. Webb

Yes, Sir.
