§ 75. Mr. Peter Mills
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will make a statement about the new process of keeping milk fresh, and its effects upon the dairy industry.
§ Mr. Peart
I am in consultation with the interests concerned in regard to the making of regulations to provide a special designation for milk treated by the very high temperature process. I am advised that such milk, if kept in a suitable aseptic container, will last considerably longer than milk heat-treated by the conventional methods, but I would prefer not to speculate on the commercial possibilities.
