HC Deb 07 December 1966 vol 737 c306W
78. Mr. Buchanan-Smith

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he proposes to raise the retail price of milk.

Mr. Peart

Owing to increased revenue from the reserve of milk for the liquid market, and the current restraint on distributive margins, the Government are able to defer until a later date the increase in the retail price of milk previously announced for 1st January next.
