HC Deb 20 June 1930 vol 240 c740W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has received reports that foreign eggs are being marked as British on a large scale; and whether he will take additional steps to prevent this?


Although reports have been received from time to time that the marks of origin on imported eggs have been removed, and there have been a number of convictions for this offence, I have no reason to believe that this is taking place on a large scale. If the hon. Member will furnish me with details of any such cases, I shall be, glad to look into the matter.
