HC Deb 31 July 1946 vol 426 c193W
93. Major Legge-Bourke

asked the Minister of Food if he has explored the possibility of obtaining bacon from Nigeria; and why no bacon may be sent by post from Nigeria to this country.

Mr. Strachey

Nigeria is not a very suitable source of supply, but we are considering making an experimental shipment; small parcels of bacon may be sent by post, but the climatic conditions in Nigeria anden route are very unfavourable.
