HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 cc206-7W
Mr. Aitken

asked the Minister of Food what action he proposes to take to avoid a recurrence of the incident at Bury St. Edmunds during the week of 27th to 31st March, when a number of local butchers refused to accept deliveries of South American cow fillets, on the grounds that they were unfit to be included with the meat ration.

Mr. Webb

None, since the meat was accepted without question as fit for the ration by another retail buying committee of butchers.
