HC Deb 24 October 1935 vol 305 c313
56. Duchess of ATHOLL

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will take steps to ensure that the concessions to level milk producers under the Scottish Milk Marketing scheme, made last winter for the period of one year, will be continued until the scheme has been amended?


In accordance with the statutory provisions I have directed the Committee of Investigation for Scotland to consider and report on this matter.

Duchess of ATHOLL

Will my right hon. Friend do everything he can to expedite the full report of the Reorganisation Committee, because there are many level producers in the areas concerned who are struggling on under great difficulties, hoping that before long there will be an amendment of the scheme which will make it operate more fairly?


I am very well aware of the anxieties which are being experienced by several producers in these areas, and the Committee of Investigation has been asked to give the matter its attention forthwith and to report.
