In the period April to June 1985 deliveries to the Milk Marketing Board in England and Wales were 3407.3 million litres compared with 3781.8 million litres in the same period in 1983. On the basis of these figures wholesale production to the end of June was running approximately 0.7 per cent. below quota.
