HC Deb 31 October 1949 vol 469 c3W
44. Sir J. Lucas

asked the Minister of Food if he is aware of the complaints received by the Portsmouth Grocers' Provident and Protection Association with regard to the condition of the eggs supplied to the association's members; to what extent similar complaints have reached him from other parts of the country; and what action he is taking to improve matters.

Dr. Summerskill

I am inquiring into the complaints from Portsmouth and will write to the hon. Member. There have been some other complaints but their number is too insignificant in relation to the supplies distributed, to indicate any general fault in the distribution arrangements.
