§ MR. ALDEN
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board, in view of the non-introduction of the Food Regulation Bill, whether he can state the degree in which his Bill has the support of the loading sanitary authorities and medical officers of the country, and the 164 extent to which it is opposed by such authorities.
§ MR. JOHN BURNS
My hon. friend is under a misapprehension in supposing that the Bill to which he refers has not been introduced this session. It was brought in some time since and is now awaiting Second Reading. I have received representations from several sanitary authorities in favour of the measure, and from none against it.
