HC Deb 25 February 1932 vol 262 c545
51. Mr. DREWE

asked the Minister of Health whether he is satisfied that the liquid or frozen eggs, not in shell, which are imported from China, conform to the same standard of purity which is demanded in this country?


These articles are subject to examination in this country and I have not received any reports that any recent consignments have been found to be impure. There is no special standard of purity, but these eggs are required to be free from preservative and are liable to seizure and condemnation if found to be unsound.
