HC Deb 05 December 1972 vol 847 c371W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what discussion about butter prices he had with the Milk Marketing Board, before the introduction of the freeze legislation; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Godber

We are in regular contact with all the main interests concerned, including the Milk Marketing Boards. World butter supplies have been more plentiful this year, and prices in the United Kingdom have fallen substantially.
