HC Deb 19 July 1967 vol 750 cc264-5W
102. Mr. Grimond

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he proposes to take in view of the difficulties of egg producers.

Mr. Peart

As the right hon. Member will know, the 1967 Annual Review White Paper announced that the Government had agreed to have discussions with the Farmers' Unions and the British Egg Marketing Board on egg marketing arrangements; a number of far-reaching proposals have been put forward and I am considering carefully my future course of action in relation to them.
