George Osborne - My Fake Diary
Thursday, 9 August 2012
I have met with a farming family who fear that a crisis in milk prices could put them out of business.
Production costs for milk are around 30p per litre. But Robert and Sarah Williams, of Curtis Hulme Farm, will be paid about 26p per litre by Robert Wiseman Dairies from August 1 due to a collapse in the value of cream.
I am most concerned for these farmers, and as soon as I get back from my 6 week holiday in the Mediterranean I will apply to propose a meeting with the Prime Minister, to consider the idea of thinking about the possibility of giving an undertaking to review the position, with the intention of a possible meeting at a later date to take action.
