asked the Minister of Food what is the present rate of production of milk bottles; and what is the unsatisfied demand.

The total production of milk bottles for six months to 28th June last was 644,777 gross, showing an average weekly rate of production of 24,799 gross. I am informed that there is no unsatisfied demand at present. If, however, my hon. Friend knows of any particular case of local shortage and will give me particulars, I shall be happy to look into it.

Does my hon. Friend realise that in my constituency I am told there is a delay in some cases of as much as two years, and will she look into it?

In view of the terrific losses of milk bottles and the unnecessary waste is it not about time that milk producers were entitled to charge for milk bottles?
