HC Deb 06 February 1986 vol 91 c261W
44. Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will take steps to permit farmhouse sales of untreated milk to paying guests.

Mr. Gummer

As I told my hon. Friend the Member for Teignbridge (Mr. Nicholls) on 30 January, we have looked again at the position of farmhouse caterers under the new untreated milk regulations. We propose to amend the regulations to allow registered dairy farmers to provide untreated milk to farm visitors provided they tell them what they are drinking.

My Department issued consultation documents covering this proposal on 3 February.
