HC Deb 13 July 1950 vol 477 c129W
113. Mr. Nugent

asked the Minister of Food the volume of imports of table poultry in 1949 and the similar figure for 1938; and what reduction would be involved by the cessation of imports from Hungary, Poland and France.

Mr. F. Willey

The quantities of dead poultry imported into the United Kingdom in 1938 and 1949 were 22,036 tons and 30,777 tons respectively. Imports from Hungary, Poland and France in 1949 amounted to 6,765 tons. The exclusion of these countries would reduce the total by about 20 per cent.
