HC Deb 11 April 1907 vol 172 c364
DR. RUTHERFORD (Middlesex, Brentford)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether there are in Egypt any penal or other regulations intended to insure a pure milk supply for human consumption or to prevent the adulteration of alimentary substances and liquids; and, if so, what was the number of prosecutions, convictions, and repeated convictions, and the penalties or other, and what, punishment imposed or inflicted in respect of breach of such regulations during the last five years.


I have no information on the subject; but I would point out that a serious obstacle to effective regulations of the nature described exists in the régime of the Capitulations.
