HC Deb 23 July 1973 vol 860 c303W
Dr. John A. Cunningham

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food who has authorised the dumping of milk at the Windscale works in Cumberland; whether the milk is going straight into the sea outfall; what is the reason for the dumping and the quantities involved to date; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Oswestry (Mr. Biffen) on 25th May—[Vol. 857, c.165–6]—about the disposal of small surpluses of skim during the flush period. What the hon. Member refers to took place in May and June after consultation with the Cumberland Sea Fisheries Committee through the Windscale works sea outfall.
