§ 52. Mr. Bossom
asked the Minister of Agriculture what is his policy with regard to increasing the amount of tuberculin tested milk produced with a view to raising the standard of quality generally.
§ Mr. G. Brown
My right hon. Friend is anxious to increase as far as practicable the production of tuberculin tested milk, and he hopes that the revised Tuberculosis (Attested Herds) Scheme which came into operation at the beginning of this month will be of material assistance.
§ Mr. Bossom
If it is the case, as the Minister says, that he wishes to increase the quantity of this milk, why is he decreasing the guaranteed price to the farmers when the cost of producing this milk is increasing steadily?
