HC Deb 18 June 1934 vol 291 cc5-6
10. Mr. HASLAM

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he has considered the terms of the resolution adopted by the Conference of Egg and Poultry Producers at Caxton Hall, on 8th June; and if, in view of the statement that distress is spreading amongst egg producers who, as a rule, have but small capital resources, he will consider taking measures to tide the industry over the intervening period until the Government are able to introduce their long-term policy?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, I would refer to the reply I gave the hon. Member for Ormskirk (Sir T. Rosbotham) on 11th June, a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend.
