Mr. Tyler

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what discussions she has had with the Dairy Trade Federation on the timetable for the implementation of the new milk marketing scheme; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Jack

The Dairy Trade Federation raised the issue of the timing of the end of the milk marketing scheme when my right hon. Friend the Minister met them on 23 May.
