HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 c117W
101. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Food what steps are taken at the present time to ensure the maximum efficiency in collecting and utilising for the purpose of fertilisers, medicines and animal foodstuffs all unwanted meat products from slaughterhouses in this country.

Dr. Summerskill

The collection and disposal of animal by-products from slaughterhouses controlled by my Department is organised to ensure maximum utilisation. All meat and offals condemned as unfit for human consumption are sold to licensed processors for the production of tallows, greases, glue, animal feeding stuffs and fertilisers. Special arrangements have been made at most slaughterhouses to collect glands required for the manufacture of essential medicinal preparations for home consumption and for export.
