HC Deb 07 May 1982 vol 23 c162W
Miss Maynard

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will take steps to make illegal the description of battery eggs as farm fresh.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

I am content with the relevant provisions of Council Regulation 2772/75 which lays down detailed marketing standards for hens' eggs, including those to which the description "fresh eggs" may be applied.
