HC Deb 30 November 1916 vol 88 cc520-1W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if the recent Milk Order is to be held to apply to organisations such as the Gloucester, Somerset, and Bristol Dairy Farmers' Society, whose winter milk contracts commence as from a later date than 15th November, and whose current contracts will leave no margin of profit if continued throughout the winter?


The answer to the question is in the affirmative. It is, however, open to any persons affected by the Order to apply to the Board in special circumstances for written authority to sell milk at a price in excess of that fixed by the Order. I am already in communication with the society referred to in the question.
