asked the Minister of Food whether he will take steps to standardise costs of collection and transport of milk from producers to wholesale depôts?
Yes, Sir. As announced on 25th November the Ministry of Food will pay to the Milk Marketing Board for England and Wales with effect from 1st October, 1943, an additional 1d. per gallon for all milk purchased by wholesale from the Board. Of the additional sum thus made available, the Board will be directed to use such part of it as is necessary to remove anomalies arising from the incidence of the standard freight deduction.
