§ 12. Mr. TINKER (for Mr. KIRK-WOOD)
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has received any report from the Scottish Milk Marketing Board as to the offer of Scottish co-operatives to sell milk retail at Is. 8d. a gallon instead of 2s., the price dictated by the board 17 during the summer; and will he make representations to the board to have the price reduced to 1s. 8d. so that consumers may get the benefit of the abundant supplies during the summer?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Mr. Skelton)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. As regards the second part as the hon. Member is aware, the Committee of Investigation for Scotland are at present considering the question of the retail price of milk.
