PRICE OF EGGS FUNCTION OF BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 23 June 1939
PRICE OF EGGS FUNCTION OF BOARD. Criticism has appeared in the press recently from both the Housewives and Grocers' Associations of the price at which eggs should be sold 'to the consumer. The Housewives' Association ex )ressed their disappointment that the board should ship eggs to another State instead of making them avail able to the pu'blic in Victoria at a lower price, while the Grocers' Asso ciation say that with a wholesale price of 1/S per dozen for hen eggs they must charge 2/- per dozen retail in stead of 1/11 per dozen as suggested by the board. It .has been .obvious to the board for some time that the principal;' fac tor in retarding consumption of eggs is the excessive margin between the wholesale and retail price. The board feels that the public should appreciate that through its powers of adminis tration under the Marketing of Pri mary Products Act it has controlled the wholesale distributing costs, and that when the price of "hen" eggs is 1/9 per dozen the allowance ...

CORRESPONDENCE PRAISE FOR SENATOR DARCY. (To the Editor.)'` Sir,-Permit me to add my con gratulations to the many others you are receiving for the stand you are taking on 'the unemployment ques tion and abolition of sustenance, and particularly on the draft letter to be sent to M's.H.R. I am particularly pleased with the word "and further more, the pledging of the, nation's credit or taxation of incomes is not desirable." In those words lie the solution of the whole piroblem, and in this connection, I feel .that the press, and especially the really 'free" press, such as your valuable chain of apers, would be doing just bare justice to the only senator who is putting up a wonderful fight.in'the Senate in bringing under .the notice of members on every possible" oc casion the futility. of a debt system of finance-(I refer, of course, to Senator - -Darcy, of Tasmania)-by publishing what he has had to say in the Senate, and reported in Han sard, from time to time. I suggest that his spee...
