§ Mr. Pardoe
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what were liquid milk sales in gallons for January, 1968, and January, 1969; and if he will estimate how much of any change was due to the ending of the secondary school milk scheme.
§ Mr. Hoy
The Milk Marketing Board's figures for liquid milk sales through the marketing scheme for England and Wales are 1260 million gallons in January, 1968, and 123.7 million gallons in January, 1969. It is estimated that out of the total reduction of 2.3 million gallons about 0.9 million gallons may represent the loss due to the ending of the secondary school milk scheme.
