HC Deb 12 July 1954 vol 530 c5W
70. Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he has now agreed with the National Farmers' Union the terms of an egg marketing scheme to be presented for the approval of Parliament and producers.

Sir T. Dugdale

No. Any scheme submitted must be subject to the procedure laid down in the Agricultural Marketing Acts, and I could not approve its terms in advance. Informal discussions with the National Farmers' Unions about egg marketing are still in progress.
