HC Deb 04 December 1946 vol 431 c335
56. Mr. Spence

asked the Minister of Food what quantity of shell eggs has been imported from Egypt during 1946.

Dr. Summerskill

None, Sir. The Egyptian Government has imposed a ban on the export of eggs.

Mr. Spence

Will the hon. Lady make representations to see if we can get some eggs in exchange for the Suez Canal?

Dr. Summerskill

I would remind the hon. Member, who must have this information, that the egg packers are continually making representations for the removal of the ban.
