HC Deb 05 May 1994 vol 242 c642W
Mr. Ron Davies

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what objections he has received to the revised scheme of re-organisation in milk marketing that will delay the vesting day; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Redwood

My right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and I will consider all representations made to us during consultation on the Milk Marketing Board's scheme of re-organisation. We will make our decision on whether or not to approve the scheme as quickly as our responsibilities under the Agriculture Act 1993 allow. I am not aware of any reason why vesting should be delayed beyond 1 November 1994.
