HC Deb 03 March 1987 vol 111 c538W
Mrs. Beckett

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will now give instructions that the European Economic Community butter to be distributed should be handled on a standard basis throughout the country and that a pound of butter should be given to someone who produces an order book for retirement or invalidity pension; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gummer

Distribution arrangements, including amounts distributed to each person and verification of eligibility are for the various charitable organisations concerned. I see no case for further specific guidance and I regard it as right that we should proceed on the basis that the charitable organisations use their own discretion.
