HC Deb 31 January 1980 vol 977 cc751-2W
Mr. McQuarrie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, in view of the concern of Scottish milk producers at the major contraction of the industry due to the present economic situation, if he has any plans to meet their representatives.

Mr. Younger

Although milk production in Scotland fell slightly during 1979, there has been no major contraction of the industry. My noble Friend the Minister of State has frequently met representatives of the industry at their request, and my officials maintain regular contact with all the organisations concerned.
