Lord Selsdon "on" the government's policies on food security:
Lord Selsdon: Not so long ago I met some gang from Chicago who were very interested in all of this. Some of them wanted to speculate in the grain market and others in production. A lot of help, surprisingly, came from Israel. They asked me whether it was possible to produce pork bellies. Thinking of some of the prejudice of the Arab world to the pig—although the pig is a forager, and the Romans walked around with it—I was quite intrigued.And so on.
