80. Mrs. Adamson
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the difficulties now operating in many districts against the establishment of the 227 milk schemes for mothers and children; and whether he is now in a position to state the milk policy of the Government on this problem?
§ Mr. Elliot
I am aware that difficulties have arisen in some areas. I regret I am not yet in a position to make any statement.
Will the right hon. Gentleman try to take some steps to give effect to this important matter?
§ Mr. T. Williams
What happens where milk businesses in an area refuse to distribute milk on the terms indicated in this scheme? Will the Minister provide the local authority with power to buy from the Milk Marketing Board and establish their own scheme?
