HC Deb 23 November 1937 vol 329 c1029
56. Mr. F. Anderson

asked the President of the Board of Trade the quantities of condensed milk, milk powder, and butter-milk powder imported into this country during the year 1936 and to the end of October, 1937, respectively?

Mr. Stanley

As the answer involves a table of figures, I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Viscountess Astor

Does not the right hon. Gentleman think that this importation is bound to continue as long as the Government's milk policy makes it a crime for farmers to sell cheap milk?

Following is the answer:
