HC Deb 12 March 1925 vol 181 c1554W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, seeing that the price of home-fed beef and mutton is abnormally high by reason of shortage of numbers, particularly sheep, any active steps are being taken to increase such numbers, which would automatically reduce the price of imported meat?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave on the 16th February last in reply to a similar question put by my hon. Friend the Member for Blackpool (Sir W. de Frece), a copy of which I am sending to him.
