HC Deb 17 December 1947 vol 445 c343W
53. Mr. S. Shephard

asked the Minister of Food if he will give an assurance that members of village pig clubs will be allowed to retain the whole of any pig they may have slaughtered on giving up the bacon coupons.

Dr. Summerskill

The Committee of three, whose appointment my right hon. Friend announced in the House on 8th December, has already received strong representations on the lines suggested by my hon. Friend but I would rather not make any comment on this or any other proposal until the Committee has reported.
