§ 20. Mr. Emrys Hughes
asked the Minister of Overseas Development if he will take steps to increase the export of milk products to the under-developed countries where the population is suffering from malnutrition.
§ Mr. Hughes
Does the Minister appreciate that, by 1970, there will be a considerable surplus of milk in this country? If this milk is not sold the herds will have to be reduced. Would it not be far better for the Government to buy up surplus milk—or have a plan for doing so—than to spend money uselessly in Cyprus and Singapore?
§ Sir A. V. Harvey
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that, unless his right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture looks favourably at the Price Review for the dairy farmers, there will be a shortage of milk by 1970?
