HC Deb 06 July 1964 vol 698 c29W
83. Mr. J. Morris

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on the continued representations that have been made to him by the milk producers in the south-east on the question of regional price differentials; and whether he proposes to appoint an arbitrator.

Mr. Soames

I have received no request to appoint an arbitrator, nor any formal representations from these producers. I have, however, received a request for advice, to which I replied that the determination of regional milk price differentials is properly a matter for the Board.
