HC Deb 19 March 1952 vol 497 cc211-2W
57. Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Food if, as a first step in removing restrictions on the keeping of pigs for domestic consumption, he will abolish the requirement that such pigs shall be formally registered at the local food office at least four months before a licence to slaughter is issued.

Major Lloyd George

As I informed my hon. Friend the Member for Kidderminster (Mr. Nabarro) on 25th Febru- ary, the regulations are being reviewed again this spring. I shall let my hon. Friend know if it is possible to remove any restriction.
