To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that consignments of eggs from Claremorris, in Mayo, frequently were delayed for nine days before they reached their destination, Leigh in Lancashire, about eleven miles from Manchester; and whether he will cause the Department of Agriculture in Ireland to inquire into and report upon the matter.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham). No complaint has been made to the Department of Agriculture in respect to this matter, but any definite representations on the subject made by aggrieved persons will be duly inquired into.
