HC Deb 22 March 1948 vol 448 c287W
51. Mr. S. Shephard

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware that village pig clubs can no longer issue rations for more than one pig per family, and since the keeping of pigs makes a contribution to the nation's food will he continue to allow rations to every individual who is prepared to rear a pig.

Mr. T. Williams

Feedingstuffs supplies are at present insufficient to provide pig club rations for more than one pig per household. The ration has never been available to more than one member of a household, and having regard to the purpose of the ration I am not prepared to contemplate its extension yet.
