HC Deb 18 June 1935 vol 303 cc181-2W
Colonel ROPNER

asked the Minister of Agriculture the proportion which the consumption of foreign imported milk in this country bears to the consumption of home produced milk?


Imports of fresh liquid milk from foreign countries in 1934 were approximately 174 gallons. Imports of foreign condensed milk were equivalent to 58,800,000 gallons of fresh milk, of which over 50,000,000 gallons represented separated condensed milk. Taken together, these imports of milk were equivalent to 8 per cent. of the total volume of milk sold under the milk marketing schemes as liquid or condensed milk for consumption in Great Britain.
