HC Deb 22 November 1948 vol 458 c88W
Lord Willoughby de Eresby

asked the Minister of Food the current price per long hundred of eggs imported from Canada, the Netherlands, Denmark and Poland, respectively.

Mr. Strachey

For eggs of the standard size weighing 15 lbs. to 15¼ lbs. per 120 the f.o.b. prices paid to Canada and Denmark at present, for fresh shell eggs, are 26s. 5d. and 29s. respectively. By agreement with the Governments of the Netherlands and Poland the prices of eggs from these countries have not been published. I can say, however, that they are comparable with those paid to Denmark.
