HC Deb 14 March 1904 vol 131 c994

I beg to ask the hon. Member for North Huntingdonshire, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether his attention has been directed to frauds committed by egg merchants in Lancashire and other parts of Britain in packing Austrian and other foreign eggs in Irish egg boxes and selling them as Irish; and, if so, whether he is prepared to take steps to safeguard the interests of the Irish producer.

MR. AILWYN FELLOWES (Huntingdonshire, Ramsey)

No representations have been received by the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries on this subject. If the hon. Member will communicate to me any detailed information which he may possess I will arrange for inquiries to be made.
