§ Mr. Sloan
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he is aware that Widow McCrindle, Pinwherry, Ayrshire, a retailer licensed to sell eggs, received two cases rattling and unfit for sale from the Government egg-packing station, Ayr; that these eggs were unstamped and therefore untraceable; that others distributed in the Girvan district have been equally bad; that the Government packing-station, Ayr, reported condition of eggs for distribution to the sanitary inspector, Ayr, who refused to take action; and what action is to be taken to end such a state of affairs?
§ Sir P. Hurd
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he is aware that the Thames Valley Poultry Producers, Limited, a farmers' co-operative society, serving Berkshire and Wiltshire, on 28th July had had tested and graded eggs in store for 12 days after packing awaiting a release note from the Ministry of Food or London port egg agent; and whether steps will be taken to remove such delays?
Major Lloyd George
As my hon. Friend put down his Question only on Tuesday I have not had an opportunity of looking into the matter. I am however having inquiries made and will communicate with him as soon as possible.
