HC Deb 30 April 1923 vol 163 c1006W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the Deptford Cattle Market has been closed for some time as a slaughtering centre; and whether, in view of the removal of the embargo on Canadian cattle, and the possibility of more slaughtering being done in this country as a consequence, he will take the necessary steps to see that the market is immediately opened in erder to provide work for the unemployed in connection with the slaughtering and allied trades?


I have been asked to reply. I would refer the hon. Member to the replies which I gave on 10th and 26th April to the hon. Members for Central Southwark (Mr. Gilbert) and Deptford (Mr. Bowerman) respectively.
