§ 72. Mr. Steele
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what consultations he has had with the Milk Marketing Board concerning the effect on the price of milk of the abolition of Resale Price Maintenance.
§ Mr. Soames
None. The retail price of milk is controlled by the Government, not by the Board, and is a maximum price. There is nothing to prevent dairymen from selling milk below this price.
