63. Sir J. D. REES
asked the Food Controller whether he has seen resolutions passed by the National Federation of Dairymen's Associations at Liverpool on 19th February; and, if so, whether he proposes to take any action upon such resolutions?
§ Mr. McCURDY
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. Two of the questions raised in these resolutions have already been dealt with. The restrictions on the use of milk as a beverage in catering establishments were removed on 9th March last, and the operation of the Egg (Prices) Order is being suspended as from to-day. In view of the shortage of butter supplies, the Food Controller is not at present prepared to act upon the resolution recommending that the restrictions on the sale of cream should be withdrawn. Full consideration will be given to the other resolutions in determining the policy to be followed as regards the future of milk control.
