§ 1. Mr. SCANLAN
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the attention of his Department has been repeatedly called to the loss to the Irish egg industry occasioned through breakages caused by improper handling by the railway and steamship companies in the course of transit from Ireland to the markets of England and Scotland; and whether he will undertake to make-representations to the railway and other traffic companies involved with a view to the avoidance of the consequent loss and the protection of this important industry?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Pretyman)
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which my right hon. Friend gave yesterday to a similar question asked by the hon. Member for North Westmeath.
