§ Mr. Strachey
The prices we ale at present paying to Denmark for butter, bacon and eggs have already been made public, and excluding the cost of transport, they are as follow:
- Butter—220s. per cwt.
- Bacon—150s. per cwt.
- Spring Eggs (15¼ 1b. grade)—15s. 6d. per long hundred.
- Autumn and Winter Eggs (15¼ 1b. grade)—19s. 6d. per long hundred.
We are also importing meat and cheese from Denmark at prices which have not yet been made public and for reasons which I have already indicated to the House I do not propose to publish them.
