Sir Norman said he hoped people would stay calm and carry on buying tripe - wherever they lived. "Common sense tells us that we can't develop the tripe industry simply by relying on our core consumers. We must reach out and embrace people of all cultures and persuasions - even those in Yorkshire".
In response to a question from the audience, Sir Norman said he would be spending Lancashire Day as he always did: "I'll be putting on a CD of that fine Bolton folk singer Woodly Gutteridge singing 'This Lancs was made for thee and me', tucking into a nice bowl of tripe and onions washed down by some Thwaites beer and following it up by a delicious Chorley cake!" he said.
