§ Mr. Granville
asked the Minister of Food if he will restrict the period of milk rationing as from 10th July to the time covered by the severe conditions of drought.
§ Mr. Strachey
I am afraid that this would not be practicable. The reintroduction of the allocation scheme is necessary because the supply of milk is now in a seasonal decline. The hot weather has merely accentuated this decline and cool and rainy weather now would not arrest it.
