HC Deb 27 January 1954 vol 522 c242W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Food what steps he has taken to satisfy himself that there is enough cold storage available in Kent to handle the meat marketing scheme when it comes into operation.

Major Lloyd George

I assume that my hon. Friend has in mind the possibility referred to in the recent White Paper on Decontrol and Marketing that a producers' marketing board could be set up to undertake on a voluntary basis the slaughter of fatstock and the sale of meat by grade and dead weight. It would be for such a board when set up to determine the extent of any cold storage facilities required and to provide them or secure their use.
