§ 34. Brigadier - General CLIFTON BROWN
asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the amount of liquid milk and what was the amount of liquid cream imported into this country from Denmark, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the Irish Free State in the last six months for which information is available, and how does it compare with similar importations last year?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
The total quantity of fresh milk imported from the Irish Free State and registered during the six months ended 31st October, 1929 and 1930, was 30,017 and 28,152 cwts., respectively. During the same periods no fresh milk was imported from Denmark, the Netherlands or Switzerland. I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT a statement showing the quantity of cream imported in these periods from the countries specified.
§ Mr. GRAHAM
If the hon. and gallant Gentleman's question refers to cream, the figures indicate in three cases an increase arid in the other, I think, a decrease.
§ Captain GUNSTON
Has an attempt been made to find out whether the herds from which this milk comes are subject to the same tests as herds in this country?
§ Following is the statement:
§ The information as regards cream is as follows:
