HC Deb 28 June 1950 vol 476 c2287
60. Mr. Higgs

asked the Minister of Food upon what conditions grocers art permitted to cook gammon remaining unsold at the end of a week.

Mr. Webb

Local food offices will authorise this only if there is a risk of the bacon going bad if kept till the following week.

Mr. Higgs

Mr. Webb
