HC Deb 24 October 1918 vol 110 cc938-9W

asked the Food Controller if he is aware that worthless substances are sold as pig meal; and whether he will take steps to protect small buyers from being imposed upon by sellers of these mixtures?


I am aware that worthless substances have in some cases been sold as pig meal, but as the hon. Member for Tavistock was informed last week, it is proposed to issue an Order specifically prohibiting the addition of husk and worthless material to the permitted ingredients of meals, and to regulate the prices charged for meals.
