HC Deb 17 November 1952 vol 507 c1395
50. Mr. Hollis

asked the Minister of Food whether he will abolish the condition of sale by which pork butchers are compelled to take a percentage of mutton in their allocation.

Dr. Hill

The aim of these arrangements for the distribution of manufacturing meat to meat processors is to ensure equitable distribution of limited supplies. But discussions with the trade are continuing, and if they can suggest a more equitable method my right hon. and gallant Friend will gladly consider it.
