§ Mrs. Beckett
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will now give instructions that the European Economic Community butter to be distributed should be handled on a standard basis throughout the country and that a pound of butter should be given to someone who produces an order book for retirement or invalidity pension; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Gummer
Distribution arrangements, including amounts distributed to each person and verification of eligibility are for the various charitable organisations concerned. I see no case for further specific guidance and I regard it as right that we should proceed on the basis that the charitable organisations use their own discretion.
