HC Deb 06 November 1934 vol 293 cc826-7
40. Mr. H. STEWART

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps are being taken to improve the position of the poultry industry in Scotland in view of the unprofitable season through which poultry-keepers have just passed?


The reports of the Scottish and English Reorganisation Commissions which are now examining the question of the future organisation of the eggs and poultry industry will, it is expected, be submitted at an early date, and immediately thereaf ter the Great Britain Commission will consider the question of regulation of imports. I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of the Press notice of 23rd September announcing the arrangements made for the restriction of supplies of imported eggs pending the receipt of the reports of the Reorganisation Commissions.
