HC Deb 30 June 1947 vol 439 c111W
83. Dr. Haden Guest

asked the Minister of Food what are the present arrangements for supplying eggs to children up to two years of age; and how many eggs were supplied per child for the months of October, November and December, 1946.

Dr. Summerskill

Children between the ages of six months and two years receive a priority supply of eggs at the rate of three a week and all other children receive one egg at each ordinary allocation. During the last three months of 1946, each child in the priority class received approximately 39 eggs and other children received approximately eight eggs each.
