HC Deb 24 January 1940 vol 356 cc604-5W
Mr. Tomlinson

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will make a statement as to the Government policy with respect to poultry keepers who deal in day-old chicks; whether they are to carry on with their businesses in a normal way; and what proportion of such business the Government advises should be foregone in order to conserve feeding-stuffs?

Sir W. Womersley

I have been asked to reply. I understand that the feeding-stuffs position and other questions connected with the poultry industry will be raised in the Debate on the Adjournment to-morrow. Perhaps the hon. Member could await that discussion.
