HC Deb 09 February 1933 vol 274 cc359-60
68. Mr. DREWE

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the position of the milk industry and the present glut of milk, he would be prepared to prohibit or restrict the entry of foreign machine-skimmed milk as an emergency measure pending the reorganisation of the milk industry


My right hon. Friend has no powers to take the action suggested. He would draw the attention of my hon. Friend to the views of the Reorganisation Commission for Milk on the subject of imports of skimmed condensed milk as set out on pages 138 and 139 of the commission's report.


Will my hon. and gallant Friend convey to the Minister the possibility of bringing this matter before Sir George May's Committee?
