§ 13. Mr. Nicholas Bennett
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations he has received on the future of the milk marketing board.
§ Mr. Bennett
Although I recognise that the present system cannot remain unreformed, will my hon. Friend bear in mind the position of small family farmers in far-flung areas such as Pembrokeshire, who fear that if the national system is broken up into as many as 30 different co-operatives, they will be seriously disadvantaged in relation to dairy manufacturers?
