HC Deb 30 January 1941 vol 368 c697W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade, as representing the Ministry of Food, whether, in view of the fact that Norfolk turkey has for years past been merely the designation for all best quality home-produced birds and, since all feeding-stuffs for turkeys are controlled at a flat price for the whole of England, while wages are practically the same everywhere, he will amend his order as to permitted prices, so as to give producers in all countries equal rights in this respect with those in Norfolk?

Major Lloyd George

At a recent conference with national organisations representing all sections of the trade, it was agreed that there was at present no need for a revision of the prescribed maximum prices for turkeys. I will, however, bear my hon. Friend's suggestion in mind whenever it becames necessary to revise the Order.
