§ MR. GEORGE LAMBERT (Devon, South Molton)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he can state the quantity of milk imported from Holland during the year 1894, and during the year 1895 to date, not being in a condensed form nor sterilised in any way?
§ *THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE (Mr. HERBERT GARDNER, Essex, Saffron Walden)
67,580 gallons of fresh milk and cream were imported from Holland during the year 1894, and 12,210 gallons have been 1160 received from the same source in the first five months of the present year. I may add that the value of these imports was £2,835 and £451 respectively, so that competition from this quarter is really of very trifling dimensions.
asked how much of the milk so imported from Holland was purchased by the Government for the use of Her Majesty's troops?
