§ Dr. Godman
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received on the recent statement on compensation for egg producers; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
I have received three representations on this subject. The schemes which were announced on 19 December, together with the Government's advertising campaign, have, I believe, made a significant contribution to the restoration of stability in the egg market in Scotland.
