§ 46. Mr. Marples
asked the Minister of Agriculture what was the total of home-produced meat in 1938 and in 1948.
Mr. T. Williams
Meat production in the United Kingdom was estimated at about 1,300,000 tons in 1938 and 860,000 tons in 1948. These figures include carcase meat, edible offals, and pigmeat used for bacon production, but they exclude poultry meat, rabbit meat and game.
