HC Deb 10 May 1911 vol 25 c1200

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether, in view of the dissatisfaction created by prosecutions of dairy farmers for the sale of genuine unadulterated cows' milk containing less than 3 per cent. of butter fat and also owing to the addition by retailers of skimmed or separated milk to cows' milk containing more than 3 per cent. butter fat, he will consider the advisability of substituting for any official minimum standard the sale of all milk according to its actual quality, adopting different prices according to its butter-fat contents, as is customary on sales to creameries in Ireland and England?


The Board have no power to require that milk shall be sold at different prices according to its butterfat contents.
