HC Deb 01 February 1962 vol 652 c116W
Mr. A. Roberts

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, in view of the hardship of many pensioners, if he will introduce legislation to make it possible for those with small incomes to be able to purchase milk in quantities of half-a-pint.

Mr. Soames

The law permits the sale of milk in half-pints and many dairymen are, I understand, willing to supply half-pints to customers needing this service. But I think it would be unreasonable to require all dairymen by law, to have half-pints available at all times to meet a possible public demand.
