§ 37. Mr. Crouch
asked the Minister of Food if he is now able to make a statement with regard to the number of fat stock shows at which he will permit auction sales on the lines of the sale at the Smithfield Club Show in 1951.
§ Major Lloyd George
As an experiment, arrangements rather similar to those made last year will be extended to established Christmas fat stock shows generally and any show committee wishing to participate should make application to my Department before the end of July. I will send my hon. Friend a copy of the announcement on the details as soon as it is made.
§ Mr. Crouch
Is my right hon. and gallant Friend aware that his announcement will be very greatly welcomed by the fat stock breeders of this country, and that it is another indication of the determination of the Government to set the people free?
