HC Deb 17 August 1911 vol 29 c2097

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether he is aware that a large quantity of skim-milk cheese is being sold in London and elsewhere under the name of Caerphilly cheese; whether he is aware that genuine Caerphilly cheese is a whole-milk cheese, and its producers in Monmouthshire and Glamorganshire are suffering loss through the sale of an inferior article under the same name; and whether, in view of the fact that under all conditions a whole-milk cheese shows on analysis an excess of butter-fat over casein, any steps can be taken under the Food and Drugs Acts, or otherwise, to put a stop to such fraudulent sales?

Mr. GULLAND (Lord of the Treasury)

Enquiry is being made as to this matter, the result of which I shall be happy to communicate to the hon. Member.


Will inquiry be translated into action?
