(a)consist wholly or in part of the buying or selling of eggs or egg products except in so far as such buying or selling may be requisite for the purposes of research or other experimental work or for purposes of demonstration; nor

(b)are similar in character to functions conferred on the Authority by section 8 of this Act,

(a)so far as it confers additional functions on the Authority otherwise than by varying a previous order, the Ministers certify that, in their opinion, all the additional functions so conferred are similar in character to functions conferred on the Authority by sections 4 to 7 of this Act; or

(b)so far as it varies a previous order, the Ministers certify that, in their opinion, all the functions conferred by the original order as it will have effect in consequence of the varying order will be functions similar in character as aforesaid; or
