§ 29. Mr. M. MacMillan
asked the Minister of Food if he is aware of the lack of a weighing machine at the abattoir at Stornoway; and if he will take action to see that one is installed to ensure accurate weighing of livestock.
§ Major Lloyd George
Yes. Sheep, however, do not need to be weighed alive on sale and they are commonly graded and purchased on the basis of estimated carcase weight. I have no power to require the owners of the premises to install a weighbridge.
