More on the eggs theme….


No doubt yesterday’s Latest News (*) from W4MP involved an element of egg-sucking instruction to some of you know-alls out there.

So, to keep the theme of the week consistent, here’s a PQ from last week:

Procurement of Eggs

9. Thomas Docherty: To ask the hon. Member for Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross, representing the House of Commons Commission, what recent discussions he has had with the British Egg Council on the procurement of indigenous eggs for all catering purposes in the House of Commons. [900297]

John Thurso: None. However I understand that following representations from the hon. Gentleman and other members of the Administration Committee the Clerk of the House directed that from the return of the House fresh British eggs from vaccinated flocks be used to prepare omelettes and scrambled eggs in ‘to order’ outlets. For large-scale production of egg-based dishes, liquid pasteurised egg is used in line with industry best practice; this pasteurised egg will now be sourced from British producers.
