HC Deb 18 March 1940 vol 358 c1623
19. Commander Locker-Lampion

asked the Minister of Agriculture what is the proportion of fresh eggs laid here and imported, and what was the proportion before the war?

Sir R. Dorman-Smith

The proportion of home-produced eggs to imports of eggs in shell is estimated to have been approximately 3:2 in pre-war years. I regret that the available information does not enable the comparison to be made for the period since the outbreak of war.
