HC Deb 22 February 1916 vol 80 cc584-5W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether the Board of Agriculture for Scotland has considered the question of recommending municipalities to organise the collection of waste-food scraps for the purpose of feeding pigs; and whether any action is to be taken in the matter with a view to effecting national economies and increasing the food supplies of the country?


I understand that the question has been raised with the Board of Agriculture for Scotland, but that they are doubtful of the possibility of doing anything practical on these lines; they will, however, call the attention of District Agricultural Committees operating in the neighbourhood of Burghs to the possibility of securing increased feeding for pigs from this source.
