HC Deb 07 December 1949 vol 470 cc1884-5
57. Mr. Turton

asked the Minister of Food whether he consulted the Milk Marketing Board before he approved the proposal of Messrs. Southwicks Wholesale Dairies Limited to establish a dairy with main depot status at Pickering.

Mr. Strachey

Yes, Sir. When consulted, the Milk Marketing Board raised certain objections which were taken into account when we laid down the conditions upon the satisfaction of which our final approval will depend.

Mr. Turton

Will the right hon. Gentleman tell us what those conditions were?

Mr. Strachey

Substantially they are that the cost of moving the milk will not be increased.
