HC Deb 31 January 1949 vol 460 c198W
Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Agriculture if, in the February review of agricultural prices, account will be taken of the urgent need for securing in the coming year a substantially increased output of pork and bacon.

Mr. T. Williams

The production targets for the various commodities are included among the many factors which are taken into account in fixing prices after a February review. The target for pigmeat (pork and bacon together) envisages a substantial increase in output.
