100 YEARS AGO: Sussex Express 5 April 1918. Preserving Eggs. In view of the possibility that the preserving of eggs not produced by householders’ own birds might be considered an offence under the Hoarding Order the controller has issued a general licence authorising any person to acquire eggs for the purpose of preserving them for use in his own household provided that notice of the number of eggs to be acquired and preserved is sent to the Food Control Committee for the district in which the person usually resides, and that the number of eggs so acquired does not exceed the number of eggs stated in such notice, or if objection is taken by the Committee to the number stated, the number permitted by the Committee. A Food Control Committee have power to reduce the number proposed if they think it necessary, after taking into consideration the size of the household and the quantity of supplies available in their district. Subject to this reasonable limitation, Lord Rhondda wishes to encourage the preserving of eggs for use in the household during he winter months.
