HC Deb 14 April 1930 vol 237 c2655W

asked the Minister of Agriculture in which centres the system of marking beef, under the national mark beef scheme, has been adopted; whether it is proposed to open up any further centres in England and Wales in the near future; and can he give particulars?


The National Mark beef scheme is at present limited to fresh beef for London and Birmingham. In conjunction with my right hon. Friend the Secretary for Scotland, I have recently appointed a committee to review the progress made and to make recommendations in regard to the future extension of the scheme.
