HC Deb 26 May 1938 vol 336 c1418W
Sir T. Cook

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has any further statement to make concerning the present prices for mutton and lamb?

Mr. W. S. Morrison:

Prices of fat sheep and lambs have declined during recent weeks, but during the week ended 25th May, a firmer tendency has prevailed in the markets and there has been no further reduction in average prices in England and Wales. The average price of fat lambs at representative markets is in fact ¼d. per lb. higher than in the previous week.
