HC Deb 07 November 1979 vol 973 c188W
Mr. Moate

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the current position regarding the importation of liquid milk into the United Kingdom from other EEC countries; if he anticipates any circumstances in which the present regulations would be altered; and if he will make a statement of his policy on this matter.

Mr. Peter Walker

All imported liquid milk is subject to animal health controls and to public health provisions, which lay down strict standards for its hygienic production, packaging and heat treatment. I do not at present see any occasion to alter these regulations, which I believe have contributed greatly to the high standards of public and animal health which we enjoy in this country.
