HC Deb 13 July 1943 vol 391 c30W
Mr. Bartlett

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in order to lessen the amount of food allocated to the Army, he will reconsider A.C.I./67/42 which precludes men in static units from keeping pigs except by permission of the agricultural officer?

Sir J. Grigg

The instructions referred to by my hon. Friend were introduced as a precaution to ensure that units paid proper regard to the necessary Health and Food Regulations. I am not aware that these instructions are hampering the production of pork where pigs can properly be kept.
