HC Deb 21 February 1940 vol 357 c1373W
Mr. Joel

asked the Minister of Food the reasons for the issue by the Government to slaughter-house managers and others of their officials, instructions that farmers must not be told what their cattle actually weigh; and whether, in cases where a farmer is dissatisfied with the ruling of the graders, he can be permitted to attend the slaughter-house to see the animals weighed, as he is permitted to do in the case of pigs?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

Slaughter-house managers have been warned that all information obtained in the course of their official duties must be treated as confidential and must not be disclosed except in accordance with instructions given by the Ministry.
