HC Deb 17 May 1950 vol 475 c163W
93. Mr. Prescott

asked the Minister of Agriculture what representations he has received regarding increased prices for egg producers, resulting from the proposed termination of the feedingstuffs subsidy; and what reply he made to such representations.

Mr. T. Williams

Several poultry organisations have made such representations and in replying to them I have stated that all relevant factors including the effect of the withdrawal of the feeding-stuffs subsidy on production costs were taken into account when the egg prices for 1950–51 were settled following the annual review undertaken in consultation with the Farmers' Unions.
