HC Deb 26 June 1940 vol 362 cc450-1
43. Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether trade unions covering workers in the milk distributing industry are to be represented on the committee to be set up to consider the reorganisation of that industry?

Mr. Boothby

I assume the hon. Member refers to the committee mentioned my reply to the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Mr. Lipson) on 10th June. As I indicated in that reply, the constitution of that committee is a matter for the milk industry. My noble Friend proposes to appoint a small committee, of persons not connected with the milk industry, to advise him independently on the matter, and arrangements are being made to secure representation of the workers' interests on this committee.
