HC Deb 28 February 1940 vol 357 cc2106-7W
Mr. Butcher

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that the Milk Marketing Board continue to distribute a publication known as "The Home Farmer"; whether this is produced at a profit or loss; and why the Milk Marketing Board do not co-operate with the established publications serving the farming community by making announcements through such papers?

Sir R. Dorman-Smith

I am aware that the Milk Marketing Board distribute free to registered milk producers, the publication known as "The Home Farmer," but I have no information as to the cost of the publication. As regards the last part of the Question, I understand that it is the Board's view that information about the Milk Marketing Scheme and the various aspects of the Board's work, is best supplied to producers through the medium of a regular monthly publication of this kind.
