HC Deb 03 May 1972 vol 836 c163W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what aspects of the operation of the Milk Marketing Board have not yet been approved by the European Economic Community.

Mr. Anthony Stodart:

The understanding reached between the United Kingdom and the EEC is annexed to the Final Act of the Conference—Cmd. 4862–1. The Government have made it clear that in the light of this understanding they expect the essential marketing functions of the boards to continue.
