HC Deb 06 March 1946 vol 420 c67W
73. Dr. Little

asked the Minister of Food whether, as the projected withdrawal of feeding stuffs from fowl producers will force the number of fowls to be decreased, he will make a moderate increase in the price of young chickens which have to be killed, to compensate fowl owners for their losses.

Dr. Summerskill

The hon. Member's suggestion will be borne in mind in connection with the present price reviews. The maximum prices for young chickens weighing not less than 1 lb. and not more than 1¾ lb. plucked, undrawn and un-trussed, are, however, already higher than for those for more mature birds.
