HC Deb 22 November 1939 vol 353 c1256W
Sir P. Hurd

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he will now give a definite assurance that the cottager who feeds one or two pigs will, under the forthcoming system of food control, be allowed to consume the meat in his own household?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I am glad to be able to give my hon. Friend the assurance he desired. Under the system of control which is to be established for pigs, the production of pigs by private individuals for consumption in their own households will be permitted, though some measure of control will probably be necessary to prevent abuse.
