Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that some women who are working long hours complain that they cannot get suitable foodstuffs for their domestic pets?

Major Lloyd George:

The hon. Gentleman will appreciate that this would mean setting up more machinery. It would, for instance, be rather difficult to try and make a census of cats.
