To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will state what was the amount of preservatives, and what kinds of preservatives, were found in the samples of fresh and sterilised milk imported from abroad and examined at the Government laboratories during 1902.

(Answered by Mr. Ritchie.) The samples of fresh and sterilised milk in question, with the exception of those taken from frozen milk, in which preservatives are not employed, were all examined for boric preservatives and for formalin, but in no case was either preservative detected.
