HC Deb 20 November 1950 vol 481 c2W
39. Mr. Joynson-Hicks

asked the Minister of Food to what extent there is still a shortage of slaughterhouses in the country; and why he will not authorise the re-opening of the slaughterhouse at Westbourne in West Sussex.

Mr. Webb

The difficulty is concentrated in about six weeks; for the remainder of the year our existing slaughterhouses can easily cope with the work. I am having inquiries made about the Westbourne slaughterhouse and will let the hon. Member know the result.
