§ 61. Briģadier-General Clifton Brown
asked the Minister of Agriculture when does the extra payment of five-eighths of Id. per gallon to milk-producers start; what are to be the payments per gallon per month; and for how long does it last.
Prices paid to milk producers will be adjusted so as to secure an overall average increase of ⅝d. per gallon throughout the year commencing 1st April, 1945. Actual prices for England and Wales which will vary monthly and according to regions will be announced in due course.
§ Briģadier-General Clifton Brown
Last week my right hon. Friend said that the prices would be in the papers. The price in the papers was 5s. 8d. a gallon, and next day it was corrected to five-eighths of a penny. The farmers are still in doubt, and why cannot my right hon. Friend give some details in the House of Commons instead of giving them to the papers?
§ Mr. McGovern
Is there any use in the Department of Agriculture having these answers typed out if the Minister cannot give them distinctly?
