The Committee will consider in particular the impact of the collapse of DFB on dairy farmers and the industry and the governance and accountability structures of DFB.

It will also look at the Department of Environment Food and Rural Affairs' (Defra’s) response to the collapse of DFB and the causes and lessons to be learned from the collapse of DFB.

The Committee does said it not intend to consider the issues surrounding the receivership of the cooperative that are expected to be covered in the report by PricewaterhouseCoopers.

The Committee has invited all interested parties to address these matters in writing by Monday 31 August. Further submissions, after the meeting held by the receivers on 7 September, will be considered.

A programme of oral evidence will be announced in due course.
