§ Mr. Brooke
asked the Minister of Agriculture what proportion of the total annual milk production in England and Wales is tuberculin-tested or accredited, respectively; and what proportion of the total passing into liquid consumption is sold under each of these designations?
The proportions of the total annual sales of milk in England and Wales which are of tuberculin tested and accredited standards are 6 per cent. and 35 per cent. respectively. The proportion of T.T. milk sold as such by wholesale is 22 per cent. I have no precise information as to the proportion of T.T. milk which is sold as such by producer-retailers. The quantity of milk sold under the accredited designation is, I understand, negligible.
