§ 90. Mr. HURD
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he can state, on the basis of statistics gathered by his Department and the late Ministry 1846 of Food, what is the probable average cost per gallon of producing milk during the six coming summer months, respectively, in the south-western counties, that is to say, the net cost at the farms exclusive both of profit and of charges for collection and transport?
Sir A. BOSCAWEN
No, Sir, I have no statistics available which would justify me in making such an estimate and it would have little value if made, since the main items composing it must obviously be conjectural.
