HC Deb 24 July 1939 vol 350 cc1033-4W
Major Carver

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he can give an assurance that every effort will be made to bring the Milk Products Marketing Scheme into force before the Summer Recess?

Sir R. Dorman-Smith

As my hon. and gallant Friend will be aware, a resolution for the approval of the draft Milk Products Marketing Scheme has been placed on the Order Paper in the hope that it may be possible for it to receive early consideration. My hon. and gallant Friend will, however, realise from the statement made on 19th July by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister, that the congested state of the Parliamentary programme does not permit of any assurance being given that time will be available for the consideration of the Resolution before the Summer Recess.
