These include specified forms of supply of liquid cows' milk and potatoes to which no process of manufacture (other than dressing or dyeing) has been applied. This Order deletes these exclusions. The forms of supply of milk and potatoes covered by these exclusions were the subject of statutory marketing schemes. All the relevant schemes have now been revoked.
