HC Deb 01 February 1967 vol 740 c109W
Mr. Haseldine

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what was the gallonage of raw milk sold in England and Wales between April, 1965 and March, 1966; and by how many producer retailers is such raw milk sold.

Mr. Hoy

Precise information is not available but from data provided by the Milk Marketing Board it is estimated that some 57 million gallons of milk were sold raw by retail during the year ended 31st M arch, 1966. This represents less than 4 per cent. of total liquid consumption (1,469 million gallons) during the period. There were 9,345 producer retailers at March, 1966.
