My answer to the hon. Gentleman is that the Community has agreed to make 200,000 tons available. There are different opinions about the amount of skimmed milk powder which the Third World and the developing world can absorb. It is not as though they all like the stuff or that it is part of their normal diet, or that it suits their digestion. However, in so far as it may be distributed for that purpose, I am naturally in favour of such distribution.
