HC Deb 26 June 1975 vol 894 c225W
29. Mr. Biffen

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on his plans for expanding the output of United Kingdom dairy products, indicating which sources of overseas supply of butter, cheese and milk he considers will be affected in consequence.

Mr. Strang

We are currently discussing with the interests concerned what specific measures may be needed to achieve the expansion which is set out in the recent White Paper. The projected expansion will reduce our dependence on imported supplies of milk products, but the precise effects on imports will depend on many factors, including the market situation at the time.
