HC Deb 12 April 1948 vol 449 cc38-9W
23. Mr. Mikardo

asked the Minister of Food if he will give an estimate of the increased demands on manpower, fuel, petrol and bottles which will result from the decision to allow consumers to change their dairymen.

Mr. Strachey

I regret there is nothing I can add to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Dagenham (Mr. Parker) on 9th February, except to remind my hon. Friend that distributors will receive no increase in their margins and will therefore be under strong incentive not to increase their costs.
