HC Deb 25 May 1933 vol 278 c1260

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will consider arranging for the re-introduction of the broadcasting of National Mark egg prices; and what is the reason why such broadcasting was abandoned?


The practice of broadcasting National Mark egg price quotations was abandoned because, in the opinion of the Board of National Mark Egg Control, the form in which it was possible to broadcast these price quotations was misleading. I understand that the Board have recently been approached with a view to the resumption of the practice of broadcasting the quotations in question, and if they consent to this course, I will do my best to make the necessary arrangements.
