HC Deb 15 November 1982 vol 32 c70W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food why he has agreed to increase the price of milk by a penny a pint.

Mr. Peter Walker

The increase in the maximum retail price of milk of a penny a pint from 14 November is necessary to meet increased costs of production, processing and distribution. I hope that it will be possible to avoid a further increase for a considerable period.
