HC Deb 31 July 1934 vol 292 cc2464-5W
Lieut.-Colonel ACLAND-TROYTE

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that imports of chilled and frozen pork in the first six months of this year show an increase of more than 100 per cent. over imports in the corresponding period of 1933; and whether he is proposing to take any steps to deal with the matter?


The reply to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, imports of chilled and frozen pork have hitherto been unregulated, though the quantity used for conversion into bacon in this country has been controlled. The position. however, is now being considered in connection with the problem of the regulation of imports of meat generally.
