HC Deb 28 May 1936 vol 312 cc2213-4W
Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE

asked the Minister of Agriculture the total weight of bacon turned out by British bacon factories for the last two years, respectively, together with their maximum capacity?


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.
