Luke Pollard responds to news that hundreds of thousands of pints of milk a week are being thrown away

Luke Pollard MP, Labour’s Shadow Environment Secretary, commenting on news that millions of pints of milk are going to waste every week, said:

“With so many people concerned about food supplies, it is unacceptable that the closure of cafes has led to so much milk being poured into the gutter.

“Farmers are losing out on pay and the security of milk production in the future is now at very real risk. We need the Government to look afresh and prioritise support for UK farmers or there is a serious danger the dairy industry could collapse.”
