HC Deb 16 December 1954 vol 535 c182W
88. Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is satisfied that the fat stock market prices supplied by his Department for broadcasting by the British Broadcasting Corporation each morning at 6.50 are fully representative; and if, in view of the value of this information to farmers, he will review the scope of these reports when the service is resumed after the Christmas period.

Mr. Amory

I am informed that the British Broadcasting Corporation have decided to discontinue at the end of this week the special bulletins on fat stock market prices which I believe have been appreciated by farmers in the early days of free marketing.
