HC Deb 16 March 1970 vol 798 c77W
Mr. Gower

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what was the total production of cheese in Wales during 1969; and if he will take steps to encourage Welsh cheese production, including the production in Wales of Caerphilly cheese.

Mr. George Thomas

Estimated cheese production in Wales in 1969 was 17,500 tons. Decisions on the quantities of milk to be used for cheese-making and the varying types of cheeses rest with the industry itself, and not with the Government.
