36. Major WHEELER
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether it is proposed to take control of the distribution of the milk supply of Great Britain; and, if so, whether, before coming to this decision, he has heard the views of the leading agricultural societies on his proposal?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of FOOD (Mr. Clynes)
It has been decided, with the approval of the Agricultural Advisory Committee of the Ministry of Food, on which are represented all the leading agricultural societies of the United Kingdom, that the Ministry of Food should assume the responsibility for the wholesale collection, utilisation, and distribution of milk.
