asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade, as representing the Ministry of Food, whether he will give the calculations on which maximum prices for eggs are based?

I would refer my hon. Friend to my answers to-day to similar Questions on this subject by my hon. Friend the Member for Stone (Sir J. Lamb) and my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Howdenshire (Colonel Carver).

Sir J. Mellor

Has my hon. and gallant Friend taken into account all the circumstances of specialised poultry farms?

There are many forms of egg production in this country, specialised and others, and we have to take an average view in regard to them.
