HC Deb 06 December 1968 vol 774 cc588-9W
Mrs. Ewing

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has considered the report of the Milk Marketing Board, a copy of which is in his possession, on the problem of the reduction in the milk guaranteed price increase because of the fall in liquid sales in Scotland; and what steps he proposes to take to ensure that in Scotland the increase will be as much as that in England.

Mr. Ross

I have received a copy of the Report commissioned by the Scottish Milk Marketing Board and the Scottish distributive trade. Action on the Report is primarily a matter for these bodies. As regards the last part of the Question I am not clear what the hon. Lady has in mind.
