HC Deb 22 June 1899 vol 73 cc287-8

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received a resolution in connection with the Food and Drugs Bills unanimously adopted by the Kerry County Council on the 27th April, 1899, stating that great injury has been done, and fraud committed, by the artificial colouring of margarine with butter; also, that the importation of foreign milk should not be allowed to continue without some restrictions; and whether effect will be given to this resolution in the Food and Drugs Bill now before Parliament.


I have received the resolution referred to, and communicated it to my right hon. friend the President of the Board of Agriculture, the Minister in charge of the Bill, who no doubt will give the resolution due consideration.
