Meat is inspected both on and after arrival, and every effort is made by the officers of my agents and of the public health authorities to maintain a good standard. If the hon. Member will inform me of any particular case for criticism, I shall be glad to look into it.
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in certain towns meat is received with dirt so deeply embedded in it that it is unsaleable, and that there is, therefore, waste? I will, as the right hon. Gentleman suggests, send him particulars.
