HC Deb 22 November 1950 vol 481 c52W
70. Mr. Black

asked the Minister of Food to what extent supplies of pork are increasing; and whether it will be possible for more distributions of pork to be made available on the meat rations.

Mr. Webb

The pig population in September this year was 8.5 per cent. greater than in September last year. Most of the pigs slaughtered are, of course, needed for bacon but there should be a gradual increase in the amount of pork available.
