HC Deb 15 July 1963 vol 681 cc18-9W
86. Sir A. Hurd

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has yet been able to agree with the Milk Marketing Board and other interested bodies conditions on which milk shall in future be dispensed from vending machines.

Mr. D. Price

The conditions on which milk may in future be sold from vending machines will depend on the provisions of the Weights and Measures legislation which is still before Parliament. As my hon. Friend is aware, Amendments have been made in another place which will allow the sale of milk through vending machines at a price of 6d. provided that the quantity is shown.
