HC Deb 06 February 1939 vol 343 c653W
Mr. G. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he can give an assurance that in redrafting the Milk Industry Bill he will take into consultation not only the producers but consumers and makers of butter, cheese, milk powder, and other milk products with a view to ensuring that a fully co-ordinated scheme of production, distribution and consumption is secured?

Sir R. Dorman-Smith

As indicated by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on 1st December last, the whole milk problem is being re-examined. I am fully aware of the value of consultation with all interests concerned but it is not possible for me to indicate at the present stage how far such consultation may be appropriate in connection with this re-examination.
