According to the Scotsman, he told the all-party parliamentary group for dairy farmers: "Since the publication of our independent report on the rising cost of milk production, we have been inundated with requests to meet with politicians who want to find out more about the research we have commissioned and the influence they can have in achieving a sustainable milk price for producers.

"We are not saying the countryside should become a museum. We simply believe the price paid for milk should be realistic and enable progressive, efficient farmers to flourish.

"We have also been invited to present assembly members in Wales and MSPs in Edinburgh with details of the current situation. These meetings are scheduled for June."

David Kawczynski MP, who chairs the group, said: "I commend First Milk for the work it has done in highlighting the spiralling cost of milk production, and indeed for its ambition to build a progressive dairy company for the benefit of their farmer members.
