§ 19. Mr. Bessell
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what percentage of milk products consumed within the United Kingdom is imported.
§ Mr. Bessell
May I ask the hon. Gentleman whether, in view of the Government's request that the industry should increase production, he proposes to make representations to his right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade to impose restrictions upon imported milk products?
§ Mr. Scott-Hopkins
Does not the Joint Parliamentary Secretary agree that the percentage of 53 per cent. which he quoted is a very high percentage of imports? Does he not agree that there should be some reduction—indeed, there must be—if anything like the National Plan is to be carried out? Even that is optimistic.
