HC Deb 17 February 1965 vol 706 c1184
30. Sir J. Gilmour

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will state the capital cost per pig housed in the piggeries built at Glenrothes for the Cadco Company.

Mr. Ross

As the number of pigs to be housed is not known, I regret that I am unable to answer the Question.

Sir J. Gilmour

Would the right hon. Gentleman agree that as the piggeries were completed anyone who had any knowledge of agricultural subjects would very quickly be able to calculate that?

Mr. Ross

Provided he was able also to tell what the through-put of pigs was from the piggeries.
