HC Deb 01 April 1963 vol 675 cc23-4W
Mr. Wolrige-Gordon

asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science what type of meat research is conducted at the Low Temperature Research Station, Cambridge.

Mr. Denzil Freeth

The Low Temperature Research Station conducts research into the biochemistry, biophysics, and bacteriology of animal tissues, the anatomy of meat animals and the application of knowledge in these fields to the preservation, processing, and improvement of quality of meat and meat products, including poultry meat. Further information is contained in the annual reports of the Station and I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of the most recent of these. The bulk of this work will, as already announced, be transferred to the new Meat Research Institute at Bristol.
