HC Deb 10 May 1934 vol 289 c1272W

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will state, in view of the fact that the ascertained bacon requirements of the country according to the Lane-Fox Commission were placed at 10,670,000 cwts. a year, to what extent these requirements have been or appear likely to be fulfilled for the second contract period from 1st March to 31st December, 1934?


The arrangements made for the current contract period provide for total supplies of bacon and hams in the United Kingdom at the annual rate recommended by the Lane-Fox Commission, and my right hon. Friend has every reason to believe that those arrangements will be observed in practice.
