§ 14. Mr. LAMBERT
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will, by regulation or legislation, enable British housewives to distinguish between fresh and imported stored eggs?
§ Sir G. BOWYER
All imported eggs are required to bear an indication of origin marked on the shell. Further, home produced eggs which have been subjected to cold storage or to any other form of preservation, are required to be suitably distinguished from fresh eggs by means of marks on the shell. It is, therefore, already the case that the only eggs which may be sold unmarked in this country are fresh eggs produced in the United Kingdom.
