HC Deb 07 March 1960 vol 619 cc3-4W
50. Mr. Morris

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he has noted the rising trend of milk production; whether he is satisfied that the Milk Marketing Board is taking sufficient steps to penalise producers supplying milk of low butterfat content; and whether he will take steps to remedy this.

Mr. Godber

Milk production has recently been higher than in the corresponding months of last year. My right hon. Friend is watching with interest the progress of the Milk Marketing Board's butterfat testing scheme and, in addition, he will, later in the year, be advised on these matters by the Committee set up to consider the composition of milk.
