§ 40. Captain BARNETT
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food if the Report of the Committee appointed to deal with the production and distribution of milk will, when made, be laid upon the Table of the House; and whether, in view of the importance of the subject and the dangers of monopoly, opportunity will be given to the House to consider the Report before action is taken upon it?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY Of FOOD (Mr. Clynes)
The Sub-committee specially appointed to consider the question of milk distribution in Great Britain has passed a series of resolutions on the subject of more effective control, and these have been submitted in the form of a draft scheme by the Committee, of which the hon. and gallant Member for Plymouth is chairman. I should like to have an opportunity of considering this scheme before expressing any opinion on the points raised in the question.
