HC Deb 23 July 1909 vol 8 cc822-3W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether any mark is made on eggs which have been preserved by means of cold storage so that the buyer of them can distinguish them from fresh eggs; and, if not, whether he proposes to make regulations requiring such distinguishing marks to be affixed?


No marks are required to be placed on eggs which have been preserved by cold storage. I am not in possession of any information which shows that it is necessary in the interests of public health that the regulations referred to should be made.
