Milk su­per levy could cost jobs

Au­gust 1983

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

Se­ri­ous job losses in the dairy in­dus­try have been pre­dicted if a su­per levy on milk pro­duc­tion is al­lowed to go ahead.

The fore­cast has come from well known En­niskerry farmer Harry Wil­liams, Chair­man of the IFI, who has re­jected the con­cept of a su­per levy on Ir­ish dairy farm­ers as ‘totally un­ac­cept­able’.

He stated that the pro­posed su­per levy would make it im­pos­si­ble for dairy farm­ers to im­prove their in­comes through im­proved pro­duc­tiv­ity and would, in fact, force dairy farm­ers to cut pro­duc­tion be­cause of the pro­posed 9p per gal­lon
