HC Deb 08 December 1953 vol 521 cc226-7W
Mr. de Freitas

asked the Minister of Agriculture what reply he has given to the letter, dated 17th November, from the Poultry Association of Great Britain, S.P.B.A., Limited, on the subject of a marketing scheme for eggs in Great Britain to cover both home and imported eggs.

Sir T. Dugdale

This circular letter raised questions about the marketing of home-produced and imported eggs. On this, I have nothing to add at present to the statement in paragraph 6 of the recent White Paper on Decontrol of Food and Marketing of Agricultural Produce and to the reply I gave to a Question by the hon. and gallant Member for Brixton (Lieut.-Colonel Lipton) on 3rd December.
