§ 57 and 58. Mr. E. Fletcher
asked the Minister of Food (1) what proportion of English and imported eggs, respectively, in cold storage are intended for future consumption as shell eggs; and what proportion he intends to break out for sale in liquid form to the baking and manufacturing trades;
(2) how many English eggs have been put into cold storage since 1st April.
§ Major Lloyd George
About 60 million home-produced eggs have been put into cold store; but some are not suitable for keeping in shell until next winter. I expect about 60 per cent, will be sold in shell and the remainder broken out. I also have about 7½ million imported eggs in store, all of which will be sold in shell.
