§ 33. Mr. McKinlay
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether his attention has been drawn to the continued abuse of the Egg Prices Order by wholesale egg distributors in Glasgow; and will he give protection to retailers prepared to give evidence of the said abuses?
Major Lloyd George
As stated in the Reply to my hon. Friend on 9th April last, I have no information regarding the abuse of the Egg Prices Order by wholesale egg distributors in Glasgow. If I am furnished with particulars of alleged abuses, I will certainly do my best to ensure that the interests of my informants are not prejudiced in any way.
§ Mr. Gallacher
Is the hon. and gallant Gentleman not aware that the whole question of the distribution of eggs is a scandal, and will he not take steps to ensure a more equitable distribution?
