Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 9th May 1949.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Food at what date he proposes to decontrol the price and distribution of poultry.
asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that poultry is regularly being sold at more than the controlled price; and whether he now considers that poultry should be decontrolled.
asked the Minister of Food when the price and distribution of poultry will be decontrolled.
I regret that I cannot yet give the date on which decontrol will take place.
Can the Minister give an assurance that, in view of the reduced meat ration, he will implement his promise to decontrol the price and distribution of poultry at an early date?
Yes, Sir, but it is the present shortage of meat which is in my mind when I say that it would be premature to fix the date at the present time.
