§ 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.
