asked the Minister of Agriculture by how much the cost of feedingstuffs for turkeys and poultry has increased since 1st January, 1950.

The cost of feeding-stuffs for table poultry and turkeys varies very much from farm to farm according to the differing proportions of homegrown to purchased foods. The average cost of purchased poultry foods has increased from about 28s. per cwt. in January, 1950, to 32s. per cwt. now.
