§ 44. Earl WINTERTON
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office, if, in view of the very low price at present obtainable for English eggs, steps can be taken to substitute them for foreign eggs in Army food contracts?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Duff Cooper)
The only eggs purchased by the War Office are for hospitals and schools. Almost the entire requirements are for new laid eggs, the specification for which prohibits the supply of imported eggs.
