HC Deb 25 April 1972 vol 835 c243W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food to what extent the milk price cut from 2nd April for the next four months will affect the price paid by manufacturers in the various industries using milk for manufacturing purposes; and to what extent this price reduction of 1p was due to the increase in butter, cheese and skim milk prices.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

The price paid for milk used for manufacturing purposes will not be affected.

In answer to the second part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to my right hon. Friend's reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Torrington (Mr. Peter Mills) on 8th March.—[Vol. 832, c. 360.]
