HC Deb 21 November 1938 vol 341 c1333
40. Sir Gifford Fox

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the fact that steps are taken to mark eggs imported into this country from Holland in such a way as to indicate whether they are cold-store eggs or fresh eggs, action can be taken in this country to ensure that retailers shall pass on this information to their customers in order to protect the interests of the British poultry industry?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

The whole question of the marking of cold-stored eggs, both imported and home-produced, is at present under consideration in connection with the forthcoming legislation to give effect to the Government's policy for the poultry industry.
