§ 21. Sir I. Fraser
asked the Minister of Food the total quantity of bacon and ham distributed last year, compared with 1950 and 1951.
§ Major Lloyd George
The figures are 495,000 tons compared with 451,000 tons in 1950 and 414,000 tons in 1951.
§ Mr. Fernyhough
In view of the fact that the figures which the right hon. and gallant Gentleman has given are comparable with those of 1952, does he not agree that the people of this country are paying exorbitant prices for the bacon which they receive by comparison with those which they paid in 1950 and 1951?
