HC Deb 17 July 1980 vol 988 c647W
29. Mr. Parris

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will now make a statement on subsidies that are available for school milk.

Mr. Peter Walker

As I explained in a written reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Rutland and Stamford (Mr. Lewis) on 27 June, the Government are anxious that local authorities should be able to take maximum advantage of the generous subsidies available from FEOGA for school milk. Discussions are under way with interested parties on the details of a scheme enabling them to do so.
