Is the Minister satisfied with the cost of the distribution of milk?

Major Lloyd George:

No, I cannot say that, but the principal recommendation of the Perry Committee was in reference to that matter. My hon. Friend will appreciate that since that time very great difficulties have been encountered by the distributors of milk. They have overcome them with very great skill, but those conditions did not obtain when the report was made.
