HC Deb 05 August 1965 vol 717 c417W
64. Mr. Brewis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how much less cheese was made in Scotland in 1964 than in 1963 and what this represents in the cost of extra imports of cheese, having regard to the average buying price in each year.

Mr. Ross

The quantity of cheese made in Scotland in 1964 was about 15,200 tons, some 1,300 tons or 8 per cent. less than in the preceding year. To have made this good by imports would have cost about £330,000 at 1964 prices.
