§ 31. Sir Charles Edwards
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of War Transport whether he has considered the long distances that milk is being 1045 brought to many places; and whether he will consider a rearrangement by which the distances could be shortened and much transport saved?
§ Mr. A. Edwards
Will this deal with the question I raised some time ago, of the carrying of milk 45 miles from Newcastle to Middlesbrough while there is a surplus of milk in Middlesbrough?
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
The scheme will deal with the whole question of the transport of milk, both retail and wholesale, and it is hoped that very large economies in transport will result.
