HC Deb 28 July 1975 vol 896 c395W
Mr. Watt

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will take steps in conjunction with his EEC counterparts to have initiated a sales campaign designed to get rid of dairy products rather than build up large intervention stocks; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Bishop

The EEC Commission has submitted to the Council a document containing a number of suggestions for dealing with the present market situation in milk products. As I explained in my statement on 24th July, certain measures, intended to help deal with the surplus of skimmed milk powder, were adopted by the Council on 21st-22nd July and there will be further discussion of the situation in September.
