§ 21. Mr. Lipton
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will give an assurance that present grading standards for bacon pigs will not be altered during the next year to the disadvantage of producers.
§ Mr. Godber
There is no intention of making any further alterations to the grading standards for bacon pigs during the coming year.
§ Mr. Lipton
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that his statement will be received with some satisfaction by small farmers and pig producers who are prone, naturally, to view with suspicion almost everything the Government do? Is he further aware that his statement will be welcomed by all the sows in pig last week?
