§ 53. Mr. D. Scott
asked the Minister of Food if he is aware of the hardship caused to innkeepers and other caterers 18W in having to surrender to his Department half the carcase of a bacon pig fed by them; and if he will modify the present regulations.
§ Mr. Webb
It is still necessary to share our supplies of pork and bacon fairly over the whole population. I do not think the present arrangements are unreasonable, and I am not prepared to change them at present. If I did I would be extending the area of hardship from caterers and innkeepers to the consumer.
