§ 117. Sir W. Darling
asked the Minister of Food how many slaughterhouses formerly owned by local authorities are still under his control; and what plans he has for returning them to local authorities control.
§ Mr. F. Willey
Two hundred and four slaughterhouses owned by local authorities are still under our control. This control is necessary as part of the meat rationing system and I cannot forecast when it will be possible to lift it.
