HC Deb 19 October 1915 vol 74 c1611

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he can state any results from the inquiry instituted by the Board last July with reference to avoidable breakage of Irish eggs in transit to Great Britain?


I stated, in reply to the questions which were asked by the hon. Member and the hon. Member for West Clare, on the 22nd July, that I should be happy to look into any specific cases of breakage or delay in transit of Irish eggs, if furnished with particulars. Since that date I have been in communication with the London and North-Western Railway Company, in regard to a case of delay, and I am assured by them that the general question of the transit of Irish eggs viâ Holyhead, is receiving very close attention. No specific cases of recent breakages in transit have been brought to my notice.
