While congratulating my right hon. Friend on the increase in bacon consumption since we left Socialist scarcity, will he do everything he can to stimulate the consumption of bacon, which is still substantially below pre-war levels, in order to help the British bacon producer?
I have very considerable sympathy with what my hon. Friend says. I believe that increased consumption can be provided as long as we get the quality we need and as long as the housewife is satisfied that she gets what she wants.
