HC Deb 08 April 1937 vol 322 c361
88. Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the failure of the Milk Act to provide the guaranteed minimum price for manufactured milk of 5d. in the summer months and 6d. per gallon in winter, it is the intention of the Government to amend the provisions in that Act?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Henley (Sir G. Fox) on 25th March.

Mr. Bossom

Can the right hon. Gentleman suggest any method by which these conditions can be rectified?

Mr. Morrison

I am sure that my hon. Friend will appreciate that the answer to which I am referring him is somewhat complicated, but I think that he will get from it the answer which he requires.

Viscountess Astor

If we do not get the answer desired, can we get a further answer from the right hon. Gentleman?

Mr. Morrison

I shall be happy to consider any representations addressed to me by the Noble Lady.

Viscountess Astor

Hear, hear. You will get them.
