HL Deb 05 July 1934 vol 93 cc391-2

My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Lord Strathcona and Mount Royal, who is unavoidably detained elsewhere on official business, I beg to move that your Lordships approve of the North of Scotland Milk Marketing Scheme, 1934. This Scheme embraces the Counties of Inverness, Nairn, Ross and Cromarty, Sutherland and Caithness and the burghs therein. No public inquiry was required. Only one set of substantial objections was lodged and these were withdrawn on agreed adjustments and modifications being made in the Scheme. The Scheme is modelled on the Aberdeen Milk Marketing Scheme which your Lordships have already approved. In the opinion of His Majesty's Government the Scheme is soundly conceived and will conduce to the more efficient production and marketing of milk within the area. We recommend that the approval of Parliament be expressed so that the Scheme may be submitted in accordance with the requirements of the Act to a poll of registered producers. I beg to move.

Moved, That the Special Order, as reported from the Special Orders Committee on the 19th instant, be approved.—(End De La Warr.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
