§ Mr. Baldry
Total imports of poultry eggs in shell-fresh, preserved or cooked, not for hatching were as follows:
Million dozen 1990 57.2 1991 34.2 1992 24.8 1993 20.7 1994 32.2 19951 16.7 1Year to September inclusive (provisional figure).
No records are kept on the destination of imported eggs once they have entered the UK, but we understand that the majority go for processing into egg products. We are not aware that imported shell eggs have been passed off as British.
