OUR MilK PRiCES ALLEGED BOYCOTT IN THE DISTRICT On Wednesday a rumour gained cur- [ rency that the milkmen in the area con- trolled by the Swansea Rural District Council had decided upon a boycott to pro- test 'against tha action of that authority's Food Control Committee in tixing the price of milk at 5d. per quart. It is known that in some parte of the area milkmen (i ii(i not appear on the scene on Wednesday. and, for explanation, they stated that if they sold at ;3c1. per quart, the net result would be a dead loss- In some districts the position was a very anomalous one. For iustance, a milkman at Glais is amen- able to the regulations of both the Swan- IS-ea. Rural Control Committee and the Neath Control Committee. The former have fixed the price at 5d., whilst the latter ailpw 6d. per quart to be oharged. On Wednesday this dealer supplied those of his customers who resided in the Neath area, but their less fortunate neighbours in the Swansea district area were left severely in the cold. Tho Food Control Committees, however, point out that the majority of retailers are themselves farmers, and if a farmer can afford to sell milk at Is. 5d. per gallon wholesale, he can equally well afford to sell at Is, 8d. per gallon retail. It is fur- ther indicated that the price fixed by the authorities is a maximum price, and there- fore farmers selling at Is. Sd. per gallon are cloarly exploiting the unfortunate re- tailer. It i6 also stated that a firm of retailers in Sw'an-se» are selling at 5d. p?r quart to- day, although the maximum is Gd. per quait. The Clydach Maternity and Infant Wel- fare Centre Committee have called the at- tention of the t'ontardawe Council'to the fact that the Food Control Committees ia many areas have reduced the price of milk to 5d. per quart, and they urge the Dis- trict Council to U\3 its powers to bring about a like reduction in the Clydach dis- trict. The district below the Wesley Church, Ciydach comes in the Swansea district area, where the charge is 5d. per (-tiifir '?, 1 li( il-,e r-4? quart, whereas ike rewt of Clydach conies in the Pontardawe area, where the charge is 6d. Commendable Efforts at Ammanford, A contrast to this anomaly is the com- mendable effort beina made at Ammanford t) co-ordinate the efforts of the different authorities.
