HC Deb 25 January 1954 vol 522 cc1456-7
47. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Food if, in view of the fact that the manufacturers of milk products have a milk products board by statute, he will take steps to give similar statutory recognition to the distributive side of the industry

Dr. Hill

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply my right hon. and gallant Friend gave him on 20th January, 1954.

Sir W. Smithers

Does not the Minister realise that if he protects one side of the industry he should protect the other side? Why does he not take off all regulations and let distributors get on with free distribution?
