HC Deb 25 October 1939 vol 352 c1414W
Lieut.-Colonel Heneage

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether, in the interests of pig production and taking into account the difficulty of sending pigs to slaughterhouses in distant towns, he will continue the present practice of allowing pigs to be slaughtered in farms and cottages?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

No action has yet been taken to prevent the slaughter of pigs by farmers and cottagers. I will bear my hon. Friend's suggestion in mind in connection with any future control of the slaughtering of livestock.
