HC Deb 11 July 1974 vol 876 c552W
Mr. Pym

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, in view of the current shortfall in milk production and its effect on the dairy manufacturing industry, he will make a statement on how he proposes to safeguard the national dairy herd and encourage producers to expand milk production so that adequate supplies are available for the liquid and manufacturing sectors in the future.

Mr. Peart

I would draw attention to what I said in the debate on 26th June and the reply which my hon. Friend the Minister of State gave to the hon. Member for Isle of Wight (Mr. Ross) on 4th July.
