§ Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE
asked the Minister of Agriculture the total weight2214W of bacon turned out by British bacon factories for the last two years, respectively, together with their maximum capacity?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
The output of bacon in Great Britain, including bacon produced from imported pigs and carcases, was approximately 2,349,000 cwt. in 1935 and 1,742,000 cwt. in 1934. I regret I have not any reliable data as to the maximum capacity of the bacon factories in Great Britain as a whole. Particulars are, however, being obtained by the Bacon Development Board, but their inquiries are not yet complete.
