Description

Interviews with a government minister and a dairy farmer about a deal on Northern Ireland milk quotas.

The minister acknowledges that they are not totally happy with the outcome but "have salvaged what was a very difficult situation and the Secretary of State has achieved something for the dairy farmers". He also mentions the differences in situation between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Dairy farmer concurs, stating that he believes that the Secretary of State has fought for them (dairy farmers) but "has come up against great opposition from the (UK) government". 

Notes

Milk quotas were introduced in 1984 in an effort to curb the over supply of milk in/to Europe.

Secretary of State for Northern Ireland at the time of filming was Jim Prior.
