asked he Minister of Food when he proposes to restore to the housewife freedom to select her milk retailer.

The Committee on Milk Distribution has made certain recommendations on this point which I am considering.

Does not the hon. Lady agree that this is an elementary right of housewives to which they attach great importance?

If the hon. Gentleman will be a little patient we shall, I hope, be able to make an answer very soon.

Has nothing happened in the last 12 months, because the hon. Lady a year ago gave precisely the same answer to me in reply to a similar Question?

Because the rationalisation of the milk industry has saved manpower.
