(1)The board administering a milk marketing scheme may submit to the Minister for his approval arrangements for the sale by registered producers, at a reduced price, of any quantity of milk produced in the area to which the scheme applies.

(2)Where any quantity of milk produced in the area to which a milk marketing scheme applies—

(a)having been sold by a registered producer, has, in any month, been used (elsewhere than at a farm) in manufacturing a milk product, or

(b)having been produced by a registered producer, has, in any month, been used by the board in manufacturing a milk product, or

(c)having been produced by a registered producer, has, in any month, been used by that producer in manufacturing cheese at a farm in his occupation, or

(d)has been produced or sold in any period by a registered producer and has been produced in circumstances determined by the Minister or by the board with the object of securing, so far as practicable, that the milk is pure and free from the infection of any disease, or

(e)has, in any period, been sold by a registered producer at a reduced price in accordance with arrangements approved by the Minister,

then, without prejudice to any obligation expressly imposed on the board by the scheme, the board may, subject to such conditions as they think fit, pay or allow to the registered producer, in respect of each gallon comprised in that quantity of milk, a sum of such amount as they may determine with respect to that month or that period, as the case may be.

(3)Without prejudice to the foregoing provisions of this section, and notwithstanding any milk marketing scheme in force, the board administering any such scheme shall have power for the purpose of giving effect to any arrangements approved under subsection (1) of this section, to pay or allow to suppliers of milk, or any local authority concerned, subject to such conditions as the board think fit, such sum in respect of each gallon of milk sold as the board may from time to time determine.

(4)For the purposes of this section a farm shall be deemed to include the farmhouse and all buildings occupied together with the farm, but not to include any premises which are for the time being approved as manufacturing premises by the board administering a milk marketing scheme.
