HC Deb 01 August 1916 vol 85 c35
59. Mr. RAFFAN

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has received complaints as to the delay in the transit of eggs consigned from Ireland to industrial centres in Great Britain and as to the breakages which take place, especially in the case of eggs carried by the London and North-Western Railway Company; and whether, in view of the present shortage of our food supply, which is accelerated by waste of this character, he will take steps to secure an immediate remedy for the state of things complained of?


I am making inquiry in regard to the complaint on this matter which my hon. Friend has forwarded to me, and will communicate with him on the subject.
