Gerald "milky milky" Kaufman

Subtle as a sledgehammer in his insinuation methinks.
That this House notes the interesting coincidence that Marks and Spencer, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose have all simultaneously increased the price of a two-pint container of milk from 80 pence to 86 pence.
Who knows if hey are price fixing the cost of milk, what's for sure is that they each monitor the others prices almost daily and react accordingly. Milky milky!

A lot of supermarkets buy their milk from Dairy Crest (which used to be part of the Milk Marketing Board). Since milk is supplied and sold daily, it is hardly surprising if the price goes up everywhere at the same time.

Waitrose is probably the only supermarket that makes its own, although I suspect they buy some in as well.

I went to look at the costs of joining the Conservative Party and Labour Party to see if they were same then they could be accused of price fixing also but you have to fill in all your details on the Labour Party webpage before they tell you much they charge.
