§ Mr. George Hall
asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware of the large increase which has taken place in the retail price of rabbits, and will he control the price which is now almost double that of pre-war days?
§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
I am aware of the recent increase in the retail price of English rabbits. This is to a very large extent due to abnormal weather conditions which did not permit of the usual trappings. The desirability and practicability of controlling the retail price of rabbits are under the active consideration of my Department.
