Motion text

That this House notes with great concern the negative consequences that falling milk prices are having on British dairy farmers; and further notes that the Prime Minister outlined at Prime Minister's Questions on 21 January that the Groceries Code Adjudicator (GCA) will be given the power to levy fines, and that the Government will look to see if the GCA's remit can be extended so it can look more closely at the UK's vital dairy industry and those organisations involved.
