Dairy Industry

Volume 448: debated on Thursday 6 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what recent discussions he has had with the dairy supply chain forum. (79757)

The dairy supply chain forum, now chaired by my noble Friend Lord Rooker, meets on a quarterly basis. Recent discussions have covered: the environmental challenges facing the dairy sector; barriers to innovation; the National Farmers’ Union’s paper, “A Vision for the Dairy Industry”; the Milk Development Council’s paper, “Raw milk contracts and relationships—the need for change”; and animal health and welfare initiatives.
