HC Deb 07 December 1931 vol 260 c1536W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will, under Section 15 of the Agricultural Marketing Act, appoint an Agricultural Marketing Reorganisation Commission to prepare a scheme for regulating the marketing of milk which will maintain the level of liquid milk prices current during the last contract year and find a possible use for supplies in excess of the needs of the liquid market so as to stimulate the output of milk in this country?


I am not prepared to impose on public funds the expense of a Milk Reorganisation Commission in the absence of clear evidence that such a course is desired by the milk producers themselves.
