HC Deb 29 June 1961 vol 643 c54W
38. Sir A. Hurd

asked the President of the Board of Trade if his expectations that planned shipments of Polish eggs would not extend beyond late May or early June have been realised; and if he will state the current weekly releases of Polish eggs on the United Kingdom market.

Mr. Maudling

As I stated in reply to a Question by my hon. Friend on 27th April, the Polish authorities informed me that planned shipments of eggs to the United Kingdom in any quantity would not extend beyond late May or early June. Current Polish sales for consumption in the United Kingdom are not more than 10,000 boxes per week, which I consider to be within the terms of their earlier statement of intentions.
