HC Deb 03 December 1971 vol 827 cc177-8W
Mr. Lomas

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he has received a letter from Mr. L. Reeves-Smith, National Secretary of the National Grocers' Federation, on the subject of milk cartons; what reply he has sent; and what further investigations he proposes.

Mr. Prior

Mr. Reeves-Smith wrote to me last about milk cartons on 28th October, and a meeting between my officials and representatives of the National Grocers' Federation has been arranged. Following an exchange of correspondence earlier this year between Mr. Reeves-Smith and myself, my officials are collecting certain information on the cost of cartoning.
