§ Captain Duncan
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the result of the initial poll on the Egg Marketing Scheme.
The returning officer appointed to conduct the initial poll on the British Egg Marketing Scheme has reported that the result is that a sufficient majority of producers have voted in favour of that Scheme for it to remain in force. A total of 210,897 registered producers cast valid votes: 198,589, or 94.2 per cent. of these, voted in favour of the Scheme, representing 93.7 per cent. of the productive capacity of those voting.
