  • Description

    AN "EGG WAR" BETWEEN WEST GERMANY AND OTHER WEST EUROPEAN NATIONS IS EXPECTED TO BREAK OUT FOLLOWING A BONN ANNOUNCEMENT YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) THAT EGG IMPORTS INTO GERMANY NOW NEED GOVERNMENT PERMISSION. THE ANNOUNCEMENT SAID WEST GERMANY HAD TAKEN THIS STEP BECAUSE THE CURRENT MARKET PRICE NO LONGER COVERED THE COSTS OF DOMESTIC EGG PRODUCTION.

    APART FROM OFFICIAL REACTION, THE FIRST DEMONSTRATION CAME TODAY IN THE FLANDERS DISTRICT OF BELGIUM.

    IN HOLLAND, THE DUTCH FOREIGN MINISTER, DR. LUNS, IS REPORTED AS SAYING THAT THE GERMAN BAN WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED BY THE COMMON MARKET EXECUTIVE COMMISSION. NEARLY HALF OF HOLLAND'S WEEKLY PRODUCTION OF 100 MILLION EGGS GOES TO WEST GERMANY. THE DUTCH COMMODITY BOARD FOR THE EGG AND POULTRY INDUSTRY DESCRIBES THE GERMAN MEASURE AS "AN ASSASSINATION" UNDERMINING THE FUNDAMENTALS OF THE COMMON MARKET.

    DENMARK, TOO, IS PROTESTING. ITS SMALLHOLDERS ASSOCIATION SAYS THE BAN IS A BREACH OF THE LONG-TERM TRADE AGREEMENT WITH THE WEST GERMANS.
