HC Deb 28 July 1959 vol 610 c56W
Mr. D. Price

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will instruct his Department's graders at bacon factories to mark all pigs with their appropriate grading in order to prevent low-grade pigs appearing on the market as high-quality bacon.

Mr. John Hare

I am informed that there would be considerable technical difficulties about my right hon. Friend's suggestion. However, the Pig Industry Development Authority have been asked to advise on the whole question of quality standards for pigs and I am inviting their attention to this suggestion.
