HC Deb 20 February 1922 vol 150 c1549W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been drawn to the views expressed by the Newcastle, Gateshead, and District Association of Butchers at a recent meeting; and, in view of the fact that the price of meat is rising, when the Government will assist to reduce the same by removing the embargo on the importation of Canadian cattle?


The reply to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. In reply to the second part I cannot agree that the removal of the embargo would cause any appreciable reduction in the price of meat.
