HC Deb 21 March 1940 vol 358 cc2156-7W
Major Carver

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware of the hardship suffered by pork butchers under the present meat rationing scheme, in view of the fact that many members of the public are under the impression that they cannot buy pork from pork butchers unless they are registered with them; and whether he will take steps to make it clear that the public have complete freedom to buy their pork where they like and that they are not compelled to buy it from the butcher with whom they are registered?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I have received representations of the kind referred to and I have already taken the steps recommended in the latter part of the Question.
