HC Deb 08 February 1972 vol 830 c304W
41. Mr. Terry Davis

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what transition period is proposed for the change to eviscerated poultry meat; and what estimate he has made of the effect on consumer prices.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

Under the terms of the E.E.C.'s directive, the prohibition on the sale of uneviscerated poultry would not have to take effect in the United Kingdom until 1976. It is impossible at this stage to say what effect on consumer prices there would be.
