HL Deb 16 February 1977 vol 379 c1742WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action they propose to take over the Eggs Authority levy for 1977–78 in view of the representations which have been made that it should be lowered.


The responsible Ministers have consulted organisations representing producers and those upon whom the levy will be imposed about the Eggs Authority's budget and the rate of levy required to meet it. Their replies are being examined and an announcement will be made in due course.

House adjourned at one minute past midnight.
