HC Deb 30 June 1952 vol 503 cc4-5W
Sir G. Hutchinson

asked the Minister of Food why the egg allocation in Ilford for the last period amounted to one egg per book only per week; and why an improved allocation cannot be made during the summer months.

Major Lloyd George

Egg production, and in consequence the allocation rate, dwindles once the spring is past. In general, allocations are even throughout the country but in any given week they may vary somewhat from district to district. If my hon. Friend will give me further details, I will look into the position in Ilford.
