§ 47. Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked the Minister of Agriculture how many horses and ponies were slaughtered for food in the United Kingdom in 1949 and 1950, respectively.
Mr. T. Williams
The expenditure incurred by the Central Office of Information in the making of this film was £4,013 of which £1,800 was defrayed by a grant received through the British Horse Society. The object of the film is to demonstrate to farmers the extent to which there are jobs which could still be done economically by the horse as an auxiliary to the tractor.
