DOMINION MEAT

QUESTION OF STANDARDS

P.A. WELLINGTON, Thursday. Inquiry was being made in England at present as to whether she required horseflesh, said Mr. Lloyd Hammond (Feilding), a member of the Meat Board, at the annual conference of the New Zealand Farmers' Union to-night. That might sound repugnant in New Zealand, but inquiries were being made in this country as to the feasibility of supply should it be required. Mr. Hammond was speaking to a remit that as a war measure meat schedules be construed to provide that all first-grade lamb and mutton be paid for at the highest schedule rates, irrespective of weight. Delegates said England wanted every pound of meat. Another delegate said they would be unwise to alter their standards now. They had three years of their contract to run and must look to the post-war market.

Mr. Hammond replied that even at their own cost they must supply England with all they could. Further, he was convinced that within ten years they would be on a quota, which would be adjusted on the basis of what was being supplied before such quota. The remit was carried.
