§ 4. Mr. Janner
asked the Minister of Food whether he has yet introduced the revised conditions of sale for condemned meat; and what are these revised conditions.
§ Major Lloyd George
Yes, Sir, I will, with permission, circulate in the Official Report a summary of the revised conditions which are of special interest to hon. Members.
Following is the summary:
- 1. Condemned meat and offals from Government slaughterhouses bought at auctions must now be processed, boiled or sterilised before re-sale. Where the meat is re-sold to a retailer for animal feeding, or to a processor, the liability for processing, boiling or sterilising must be included in the contract of sale.
- 2. The revised conditions of sale also require sellers of raw condemned meat and offals to inform the medical officer of health in the area where the meat is delivered of the names and addresses of the consignees.
