HC Deb 25 October 1916 vol 86 cc1151-2W

asked the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture (Ire- land) whether the Department have received complants of losses of Irish eggs due to imperfect packing, careless handling in transit, and other causes; and, seeing that the two defects mentioned have been frequently brought under the notice of the Department, can he state any measures taken by the Department to obviate them?


The steps taken by the Department in this matter were given in my reply of the 19th instant to a similar question by the hon. Member for West Wicklow. The Department fully recognise the importance of the subject.
