FOUR BILLION IMPORTED EGGS FOR BRITAIN YEARLY London, March li.? Great Britain's breakfast egg bill mounts up pretty h'gh, the citizens of that country consuming 5.700,000,000 eggs a year. Native fowls only supply two billion of these. The sum of money spcr.l by Britain for eggs imported from outside the British empire, which constitute -17 per cent of Britain's importations of this article of food, exceeds the value of all the motor cars, motorcycles, cycles and rubber tires which Britain exports. The imperial economic council wants something done about it. English hens laid 72 eggs in the prewar period to their present 10,000, hut the eggs are smaller at present. Denmark and China supply manyeggs to Britain. The economic council Wants home laid eggs identified so that the public may give them the preference.
