§ 8. Colonel Ropner
asked the Minister of Food how many cases have been brought to his notice in which a longer period than one week has elapsed between the collection of eggs from farms on behalf of packers; and what steps he is taking to ensure that collections of eggs are effected at regular weekly intervals.
§ Mr. F. Willey
During recent months we have had complaints concerning some 30 Packers out of a total of nearly 500. Packers are instructed to collect eggs weekly except where, due to exceptional conditions, less frequent collection is authorised by my Department.
