HC Deb 26 February 1931 vol 248 c2271
76. Mr. HURD

asked the Minister of Health if he has considered the suggestion submitted to him that in order to encourage the supply of pure milk the Ministry should abolish the licence fees now demanded from producers who apply for permission to sell certified or grade A milk; and if he will adopt this suggestion?


I am not at present satisfied that the abolition of the licence fees for graded milk would have any appreciable effect upon the supply; but I will consider the matter in consultation with my right hon. Friends the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Minister of Agriculture and also with representatives of local authorities when opportunity occurs for the general revision of the Special Designations Order.
