§ 74. Mr. HURD
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will state the latest available figures of the importation of liquid milk into Great Britain from the Continent and Ireland, respectively; and whether this milk is produced under regulations for cleanliness, &c., similar to those of our own milk and dairies orders?
I have been asked to reply and I would refer my hon. Friend generally to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member for Tiverton (Colonel Acland-Troyte) on 10th February.
As regards the Continent of Europe, I understand that the total imports of liquid milk in 1926 were 184 cwts. The conditions prescribed by the Imported Milk Regulations will secure that milk from the Continent is in a substantially similar condition as regards cleanliness to that produced in thin country in accordance with the Milk and Dairies Order.
I understand that no milk is brought from Ireland into England and Wales.
