HC Deb 06 July 1954 vol 529 c144W
56. Mr. Beswick

asked the President of the Board of Trade why the import of eggs from Bulgaria is prohibited and the import of eggs from China permitted.

Mr. Amory

Imports of shell eggs from Bulgaria are not prohibited; individual applications for import licences would be considered, but none has so far been received since the Ministry of Food ceased to be the sole importer.
