Did the President of the National Farmers' Union tell the right hon. Gentleman in October that he was producing milk at a loss? Is it not a remarkable achievement that the Government should have presided over a catastrophic rise in the price of food to the housewife and a catastrophic fall in profits for the farmer at one and the same time? How was it done? Will the right hon. Gentleman guarantee that milk production will be profitable before 28th February?
