§ Major Neven-Spence
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether steps are being taken to establish egg-packing stations in the counties of Orkney and Shetland; and whether he is prepared to exempt these counties from control until such time as packing stations shall have been established?
Major Lloyd George
The Ministry of Food's area egg officer for Scotland is investigating the situation in Orkney and Shetland on the spot. The whole of the counties of Orkney and Shetland will be exempted for the present from the Egg Control Scheme.
