HC Deb 04 March 1946 vol 420 c3W
Squadron-Leader Hollis

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his Department has sanctioned the production of plastic mats and lamp shades and other objects out of milk; and how much milk it is estimated will be used during the next 12 months for these purposes.

Sir S. Cripps

Licences have been, and will continue to be given for the manufacture from casein of goods which are essential for the home market and for the export trade. Casein is the only plastic material which has a high milk content, but it is imported from South America, and there is no drain on supplies of home produced milk.
