HC Deb 06 November 1940 vol 365 c1368W
Mr. W. Joseph Stewart

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food the quantity of milk now being used for manufacturing purposes which might be diverted to domestic consumption to meet any shortage that may arise during any period in which production is at a low level?

Major Lloyd George

The quantity of milk at present being allocated to manufacturing purposes (i.e., the production of butter, cheese, condensed milk and milk powder) is equivalent to less than 6 per cent. of the total production. In the event of an emergency arising this small quantity might be temporarily reduced.
