§ Sir Peter Mills
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (1) what is the position of farmhouse cheesemakers under the new milk quotas;
what is the position of producer retailers under the new milk quotas.
§ Mr. Foulkes
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how milk producer-retailers in England will be affected by the new arrangements in the dairy industry for milk quotas; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Jopling
Farmhouse cheesemakers and producer-retailers are subject to the supplementary levy arrangements. There remains some uncertainty about the allocation for direct sales which I have asked the Agriculture Commissioner to resolve urgently. At the same time we are considering urgently with the industry how they should be applied to district sales so that we can announce details as soon as possible.
