Abstract

At the annual meeting of Cow & Gate Ltd., in April, the Chairman of the Company said I think everyone looks forward to the day when the Ministry of Food ceases to exist. This is not meant in any way to reflect upon the ability with which this Ministry was administered during the war and immediate postwar years, but a Ministry of Food should not really be necessary in peacetime. Before the war the milk industry was largely governed by the Milk Marketing Board, and we have great admiration for the Boards activities but it was representative only of the producers side of this great industry. The distributive and manufacturing trade in the British Isles has grown out of all knowledge since 1939, and this country has relied more and more upon home manufacture as well as home production, both during and since the war. If some of the powers at present delegated to the Ministry of Food are to be placed in other hands, they should in all fairness be shared by the producers, distributors and manufacturers, who have at least an equal stake financially and who should be equally capable of discharging these duties in a conscientious and publicspirited manner. In my opinion, moreover, the day is long outlived when it can possibly be expedient or in the public interest to allow a statutory body representing purely producers interests to be the sole arbiter in regard to such a vital matter as the nations milk supply.
