HC Deb 15 March 1934 vol 287 cc570-1

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of his recent announcement with regard to the disposal of the surplus milk supply, he will make the same concession of cheap milk to hospitals as he proposes to do in the case of schools?


As indicated in the statement which I made on the 22nd February, it will be for the Milk Marketing Boards to frame proposals for expenditure from the milk publicity fund. The approved programme is required to contain, inter alia, provision for the supply of milk to schools at reduced rates, so that it will be open to the boards to consider other suggestions such as that put forward by my hon. Friend.
