HC Deb 27 April 1908 vol 187 c1031
MR. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether, owing to the absence of any standard for preservatives in food and the consequent confusion prevailing in the public mind, he will be prepared to incorporate in the regulations he is now drafting under the powers conferred upon him by the Public Health (Regulation of Foods) Act, 1907, a clause fixing such standard, and thereby give practical effect to the recommendations of the Departmental Committee of 1900.
