HC Deb 05 August 1965 vol 717 cc438-9W
Mr. Wall

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he is taking to prevent the flooding of the British market by Irish milk, which will otherwise result from the planned increase of 40 per cent. over the next three years announced by the Irish Milk Marketing Board.

Mr. John Mackie

My right hon. Friend has no control over the production of milk outside the United Kingdom, but we have no reason to believe that Irish milk is likely to enter the British liquid milk market.
