HC Deb 08 July 1941 vol 373 cc61-2W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether, under the egg-rationing scheme, gifts of eggs by producers to friends will be permitted?

Major Lloyd George

I would refer my hon. Friend to my previous statement on the egg scheme. Commercial producers will be required to sell eggs only to packing stations. There is nothing in the scheme which will prevent any producer retaining eggs for his own household consumption.
