HC Deb 31 July 1946 vol 426 c191W
84. Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Food if he has now reached a decision on the killing price to be fixed for hens during the period August to November when poultry farmers will have to dispose of many thousands of birds from laying flocks.

Mr. Strachey

I regret that I am unable at present to add anything to the reply which I gave the hon. Member on 17th July. I hope, however, to make an announcement shortly.
