HC Deb 25 July 1938 vol 338 c2728W
Mr. Guest

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the present serious fall in prices, he will consider giving assistance to home-produced mutton and lamb, thus enabling sheep farmers to meet their obligations of higher wages and increased costs?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

The difficulties and objections involved in any scheme of financial assistance to producers of sheep and lambs are such that I am afraid that I can hold out no prospect of the proposal being adopted.
